On December 5 and 6, 2014, thousands celebrated the power of Special Olympics Pennsylvania (SOPA) to change hearts and minds about individuals with intellectual disabilities.
Over 1,400 people came out to show what it means to be “freezin for a reason” and didn’t let a steady rain and cold temperatures dampen their enthusiasm! It is anticipated that over $400,000 will have been raised by what has become “the event” to end the year in Pittsburgh, which equates to over $1.5 million raised during the first 5 years of the plunge! Back for the 5th year as Plunge Emcee and voice of the plunge was Randy Baumann from WDVE. Joining Randy from WDVE was Morning Show member Bill Crawford and DVE afternoon drive personality Sean McDowell, as well as Abby Krizer and Bob McLaughlin from 105.9 The X and Carson Blackley from BIG 104.7.
A huge thank you is extended to the Law Enforcement Torch Run committee, statewide Polar Plunge partner - Aerotek, Pitt Ohio Express, Primanti Brothers, JB Fay, Calgon Carbon, LANXESS, Highmark and many others.
