Support the Make-a-Wish Foundation! Take the Polar Bear Plunge in the Poconos.


Polar Bear PlungeThe 13th Annual Pocono Polar Bear Plunge is on Sunday, February 17th at 1pm at Henning’s Pond in Albrightsville, PA 18210.

Those who are brave enough to take the plunge can do so for a donation of $30. Spectators are asked to donate at least $1.00 for this worthy cause, The Make-a-Wish Foundation for Northeastern PA.

My bucket list has just been changed to add “A Polar Bear Plunge.”  I’m not brave enough yet but someday, I’m hoping.

After the plunge there will be a spirited celebration held at Robert Christian’s Restaurant on Route 940 in Pocono Lake, PA.  One lucky man and woman will be crowned “Mr. & Mrs. Pocono Polar Bear.” You can contact them at 570-646-6600 for more information.

All swimmers will receive a commemorative gift and complimentary hot food and beverages.

Registration is required by February 12th and all participants will need to sign a liability waiver. Wetsuits are not permitted. Sorry.

Local events are brought to you courtesy of Bobbie and Dawn with RE/MAX of the Poconos. Have a local event that you would like us to post, please forward an email with detailed info to Bobbie at bobbiej51@hotmail.com.  We’ll be happy to post it and share it for you!

Bobbie - BRRRRRR!!!  There's a reason I live in Phoenix...!  I think I'd pay $30 just to watch someone; I'd have to be paid $30k+ to actually get in that water....!

Sharon, LOL That's what I think too but though I might be brave enough to add it to my bucket list.  Maybe when I'm 65 I would have enough guts.  Maybe!

Love polar bears - have no interest in taking the plunge. Too cold for me - although, maybe just once. Ha. Let's both shoot for giving it a try at 65 - that gives us some time to change our minds.

Not sure I could ever do this event.  Unless they hold it down here, and then it's no problem!  :-)

Gabe, Good point. When I'm ready to do a polar plunge I need to do it south. LOL

That is definitely not on my bucket list, Bobbie, but it's a fun sounding event for a great cause.
