Cold for a Cause polar plunge rescheduled

From staff reports

The Cold for a Cause polar plunge scheduled Saturday at Two Mile Run County Park has been rescheduled for Saturday, Feb. 24, due to extreme cold temperatures.

The plunge is hosted by the Oil City YMCA and Two Mile Run County Park. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 11:30 a.m. with the first plunge at noon. The plunges will take place in 10-person waves.

The idea was formed to help raise money for the YMCA annual campaign to support local youth and to help the county make improvements at the Two Mile Run park.

Participants will receive T-shirts for gathering $15 in pledges. T-shirts and towels will be awarded to those who collect at least $100. Those collecting $500 in pledges will earn a T-shirt, towel and hooded sweatshirt.

Registration is required for the event. To register, contact Jen Kissell-Dudek at (814) 677-3000.

Pledge forms are available at the YMCA website
