On Saturday, 40 people represented the school district by jumping or running into icy cold waters.
According to the website, plunge participants take a quick dip in the river to raise funds for Special Olympics Pennsylvania, the state's largest year-round organization devoted to sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
"It shows what a great district we are and how we can pull together to raise thousands of dollars for a GREAT CAUSE that our kids enjoy!"
All five buildings in Ambridge competed by raising funds for the plunge
- Highland $1595.00 ( raised the most second year in a row)
- High School $992.90
- Junior High $836.00
- Economy $680.75
- State Street $289.00
