The Oil City YMCA and Two Mile Run County Park are hosting a first annual Cold for a Cause Polar Plunge at Crosby Beach on Saturday, February 24, 2018.
The idea was formed to help raise money for the YMCA Annual Campaign to support local youth and to help the County make important improvements at the County Park. Additionally, jumping into icy waters is just plain fun!
“This is our first year doing the plunge,” said organizer, Jen Kissell-Dudek. “It is going to be exciting. The beach is zero entry, so you won’t have to jump in to water over your head. We’re encouraging those who participate to come in costume if they would like.”
Jumping into chilly waters is not something everyone can say they’ve done. Participants will receive t-shirts for gathering just $15 in pledges. T-shirts and towels will be awarded to those who collect at least $100. $500 in pledges will earn a t-shirt, towel and hooded sweatshirt.
Pre-registration is required for the event. To register, contact Jen Kissell-Dudek at 814-677-3000. Pledge forms are available at the YMCA website www.oilcityymca.org/resources.
