Time; 10:00am Registration

Plunge Time; 11:00am

Place; Canoe Creek State Park

HOLLIDAYSBURG AREA YMCA – Come take part in our First Annual Polar Bear Plunge held at Canoe Creek State Park on December 17, 2011. Plunge participants take a quick dip in the freezing water of Canoe Creek State Park to raise funds for The Hollidaysburg Area YMCA Annual Appeal Campaign.


With just $50 in pledges, all participants receive a commemorative Polar Bear Plunge t-shirt and the great feeling of freezing your “tail” off for a truly worthy cause. Plus, the more money Plungers raise, the more polar bear plunge gear they can get – like drawstring backpacks, warm cozy bath towels, the chance to win YMCA memberships and much more!

All plungers must be at least 13 years of age. A minimum of $50 (per participant) in donations is required and must be submitted with the completed registration form. All plungers must wear closed toe shoes. Teams MUST have a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 25 team members (all team members must fill out a registration form). Individual participants may not participate on a team.

For more information contact the YMCA at 695.4467 or visit our website
