Paula shares, “Yes folks, you are seeing this right. Last year a bunch of really adventurous people jumped into the Quemahoning Dam in February ... but we were ‘freezin for a reason!’ We did not do this because we love the cold water, but because we are all passionate about Special Olympics Pennsylvania, and Winter Games in particular. Much needed financial support enables Special Olympics Pennsylvania to continue to provide ongoing support for Special Olympic Athletes across the State of Pennsylvania. For more information, or to sign up for future plunge events or the “Too Chicken to Plunge” group, please visit”

MSOL received this information from Paula as part of her efforts to raise awareness for the Polar Plunge, which was held on February 11, 2012. She is an avid supporter of the Special Olympics Pittsburgh. To visit Paula’s plunge page, visit
