Welcome to Special Olympics York County
UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO THE RIVER CONDITIONS, WE MUST POSTPONE THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS YORK COUNTY POLAR BEAR PLUNGE UNTIL SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27TH!
WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE THAT THIS MAY HAVE ON ANYONE, BUT SAFETY MUST BE OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY.
THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!
