Join us for the 2017 Eastern Polar Plunge: Donate or join. Remember to join or donate to Team Montgomery County Cold Comfort in order to get the dollars to our county program.
Join the Montgomery County Special Olympics Long Distance Running/Walking and Track coaches, volunteers and athletes for a wade into the Delaware River. We have raised thousands of dollars from sponsoring donors since our first jump in 2009.
Water too cold? You can choose the Chicken Plunge and just cheer from the riverbank while wearing your "Too Chicken to Plunge" gift shirt.
Have other things to do that weekend? Sure! Just consider a donation to a team member. Our team will be listed on the Eastern Polar Plunge site as the event website opens near the end of the calendar year.
Special Olympics PA night (or afternoon!) at the 76ers! Order your tickets online with the promo code SOPA as you can see in the flyer below.

Did you know that all Class A volunteers’ background clearances will expire on July 1, 2016? The new Pennsylvania law goes into effect on July 1, 2016. Therefore, all SOPA Class A volunteers must complete all new background clearances by July 1, 2016 OR before the volunteer begins their Class A role. For example all Management Team Members and Fall Sports Coaches need to begin the process now, while Winter Sports Coaches may wait until the fall to start the new clearances. Contact the SOMC office to start your new clearances.
Thank you for supporting the Special Olympics Montgomery County Spooktacular Halloween Costume Party and Fundraiser. It was such a success so stay tuned for next year!
