The Capital Area Polar Plunge supports Special Olympics PA – Area M, which trains athletes in Cumberland, Dauphin, Perry and Northern York Counties. In Area M, over 2000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities are given the opportunity to train and compete in 20 different sports throughout the year. These opportunities are provided free of charge to our athletes and their families. This is made possible in part due to the funds raised through the Capital Area Polar Plunge, which is our largest fundraiser.
