Thank You for visiting here! I will be “freezin for a reason” on Saturday, February 18th at the Lehigh Valley Polar Plunge at Scott Park in Easton. This is the fourth time I will jump completely into the Delaware River in Winter to help raise funds to support Special Olympics of Pennsylvania (SOPA). You never know what you're gonna get from The Plunge! Last year the air temperature actually reached 60 degees even though the water was still 34 degrees. Two years ago the ice on the Delaware was so thick that the back-hoe couldn't break it at the boat dock, so The Plunge moved across the park to the Lehigh River and the shelter of the dam holding most of the ice flows up stream. There're pics in my FB timeline, pretty dramatic!
If you choose to donate through my page, fully half of your donation will directly benefit the Lehigh County SOPA local program that operates the sports and events that my youngest daughter Heidi and her 200 friends participate in. The other half will benefit Special Olympics Athletes throughout Pennsylvania, the friends Heidi makes at competitions. If you know Heidi, you know that making friends is her favorite thing to do!
Please click the "Donate Now" button up and to the right to help support these awesome programs. If you would prefer to use a check or money order rather than a credit card, please log the check number on the "Donate Now" page, make it payable to SOPA or Special Olympics PA, and include my first and last name and “Lehigh Valley Polar Plunge” on the memo line.
Donations can be mailed directly to the following address:
Special Olympics Pennsylvania
ATTN: Lehigh Valley Polar Plunge
2570 Blvd. of the Generals, Suite 124
Norristown, PA 19403
Your donation will "credit" to the main Polar Plunge totals after your check clears. Soo, if you choose this method, please mail your check soon so your donation can be included in the totals annouced on Plunge Day!
Please join us on the 18th in Scott Park in Easton. The party starts at 8:30 AM, there's music, food, dancing and costumes. At noon the Super Plungers will make the last of their 24 consecutive hourly plunges. Then those of us "brave" enough will begin plunging in the river in waves of about 25 people. It is quite the event.
Thank you for your support!
