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