For anyone looking to do something crazy, it’s not too late to sign up for the Polar Plunge, an event Mr. Charles Burch and the Key Club are planning to attend.

Registration is a $50 donation.

For those who don’t want to take the plunge can register under “too chicken to plunge” with a $50 donation as well.

The Plunge takes place on February 3 at noon at Canoe Creek State Park.

The Polar Plunge is an event where attendees take the plunge into the ice cold waters at Canoe Creek. During this event attendees will be treated to a fun filled day with music, food & friends and all proceeds benefit the Special Olympics PA (SOPA).

Thousands come just to watch everyone take the plunge.

“It is a fun time and lots of Sheetz coffee and doughnuts are available for free. There is a big bonfire and DJ that plays for a couple of hours,” said Mr. Burch.

The Polar Plunge has been going on for six years now. Last year the Key Club raised $700 through the Powder Puff football game and a jeans day in December.

Mr. Burch said this year the Key Club should surpass $1,000 in donations.

If you are interested in participating in the Polar Plunge, talk to a Key Club member or see Mr. Burch.
