Polar Plunge

This year’s Polar Plunge is “brrr-utal” (get it?), but people all over western Pennsylvania will participate from home to help raise money for the Special Olympics. Participants will pop a large water balloon over their heads and send a video of their #PAPolarPop from February 1 to 26. Check the Mt. Lebanon Police Department website to learn how to donate or join.
