The 13th Annual Capital Area Polar Plunge hosted by Special Olympics PA - Area M will take place on City Island in Harrisburg on Saturday, January 20, 2018. The Capital Area Polar Plunge is a wild, crazy and just plain fun event for a great cause. Plunge participants create a fundraising goal and collect donations to support local Special Olympics athletes as they prepare to be 'Freezin For A Reason' on January 20th. There is a $50 minimum to participate.

Please join in on the celebration and make a commitment to Plunge today! If jumping into the icy cold water isn't your thing, you can still participate and show your support by making a pledge to a braver soul or by registering as a Chicken Plunger!

The Capital Area Polar Plunge is hosted by Special Olympics PA - Area M. We offer sports training and competition to children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Cumberland, Dauphin, Perry and Northern York Counties. We have over 2,000 athletes in our program and offer training in 20 different sports throughout the year.
