Pittsburgh Polar Bear Plunge

On Saturday, February 23, 2019 more than 1,000 participants and spectators will travel to Heinz Field in Pittsburgh PA, to participate in the Pittsburgh Polar Bear Plunge for Special Olympics Pennsylvania. 

Individuals of all ages will commit to take a dip in the “cool” waters of the Ohio River to raise money for nearly 20,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities who experience life-changing benefits as a result of their participation in the organization’s year-round training and competition programs -- all at no cost to themselves or their families.
