THE YORK COUNTY PLUNGE HAS BEEN POSTPONED!! Unfortunately, due to river conditions, the York County Polar Plunge must be postponed until Saturday, February 27th! We apologize for any inconvenience this may have on anyone, but safety must be our number one priority. Please help us to spread the word!

Approximately 950 to 1,100 people took the York County Polar Plunge in Wrightsville, PA on Saturday, February 7, 2015. Participants jumped into the 35-degree waters of the Susquehanna River in support of the athletes of Special Olympics York County. Teams and individuals raised approximately $120,000.

To check out all the latest information please visit the Special Olympics York County Polar Bear Plunge website.


Those who are too afraid to Plunge can still support Special Olympics PA by registering under "Too Chicken To Plunge"! For a $25 minimum donation, individuals can support their friends, family members and co-workers who are plunging and get their very own "Too Chicken To Plunge" long sleeved t-shirt. Individuals can join a team, start their own team, or be "Too Chicken" alone.
