4th Annual Rockaways Polar Plunge – Saturday, March 24, 2018


Last year over 300 participants braved the icy waters while hundreds of spectators looked on with excitement. These brave souls are your neighbors, friends and of course Special Olympics New York athletes. Help raise money for these athletes by asking your friends, family, coworkers, etc. to support you in taking the PLUNGE! Then, take a dip or slow crawl into the chilly waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Every plunger that raises $150 receives an official Plunge sweatshirt. Raise more money and receive more great prizes! Whether you would like to plunge or support a Plunger, come join us!
