Polar Plunge & Winter Festival
We will be Freezin’ for a Reason at the 8th Annual Town of North Hempstead Polar Plunge & Winter Festival
Saturday, March 3, 2012 at North Hempstead Beach Park in Port Washington
Registration between 10:00 - 11:30 am PLUNGE at Noon
Last year over 550 Plungers braved the icy waters while spectators giggled with excitement at the Winter Festival. These brave souls are your neighbors, friends and of course Special Olympics athletes.Help raise money for the athletes of Special Olympics New York by asking your friends, family, co-workers, etc. to support you in taking the PLUNGE! Then, take a dip or slow crawl into the chilly waters of the Long Island Sound. Every Plunger that raises $100 receives an official Plunge sweatshirt, raise more money and receive more great prizes! This is a morning filled with fun & festivities. Whether you plunge or support a Plunger, come join us on March 3rd for a cup of hot chocolate!
