About Lehigh Valley Plunge
On January 18, 2014, more than 600 brave souls, including radio and TV personalities along with Special Olympics PA athletes, jumped into the frigid waters of the Delaware River (at Scott Park in Easton, PA) and were “freezin’ for a reason.” The 2nd Annual Lehigh Valley Polar Bear raised more than $90,000 for Special Olympics Pennsylvania.
To kick off Polar Plunge a day in advance an inaugural Super Plunge, sponsored by Dunkin’ Donuts, was held that challenged a group of 4 brave souls and 5 Super Plunge teams to plunge into a freezing cold pool every hour for 24 hours (noon to noon, Jan. 17 – 18) to show their diehard support of Special Olympics.
