Thousands of Polar Bears Plunge for Special Olympics Delaware


It was chilly afternoon at the beach in Rehoboth yesterday for the over 3200 Polar Bears who helped to raise over $875,000 for Special Olympics Delaware.  The air temperature was a mild 47 degrees – but the Atlantic was a bit colder at 37 degrees for this year’s plungers. Over the plunge’s 27 year history, nearly $11-million has been raised for training and competition for the over 4200 Delawareans of all ages who have intellectual disabilities.
