 The COVID-19 pandemic may be stopping us from being able to get together in person for sports trainings, competitions and various fundraising events, but it is not going to stop Special Olympics PA from hosting the 2021 version of a virtual Pittsburgh Polar Plungeā€¦. called the PA Polar Pop!

 For over 10 years the Pittsburgh Polar Plunge has raised a significant amount of money to support year-round sports training and competition events for the over 1,400 athletes here in Allegheny County. Your support of the PA Polar Pop is even more important this year.

You can participate in the PA Polar Pop by: registering to take the Polar Pop challenge; signing up to be a Hibernating Polar Bear, or sponsor an individual participant and/or donate in support of: TEAM ALLEGHENY PENGUIN POPPERS!

SOAC has created a team page for Allegheny County athletes, coaches, family & friends to join or donate to TEAM ALLEGHENY PENGUIN POPPERS! The Allegheny team page link can be found below:


 Athletes can register for free: Go to the Allegheny team page then click "Join Team" on the left side of the page, at the bottom of the next page is the option for:          "Athlete Burr-tual Plunger", next list one athlete in the registration box.

All participants who register as part of our team will be mailed a Special Olympics Allegheny County balloon to use for their Pop!

TEAM ALLEGHENY PENGUIN POPPERS participants are asked to do their            PA Polar Pop challenge anytime between Monday, February 1st thru Friday, February 26th.

Please share all of you Pop! photos and videos to the links below as well as through social media:
