Last year over 500 Plungers braved the icy waters while spectators giggled with excitement. 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 $125 receives an official Plunge sweatshirt, raise more money and receive more great prizes!
Whether you plunge or support a Plunger, come join us on December 15th for a cup of hot chocolate!
How do I get started?
You can start a team, join a team or join as an individual. Set up your Personal Plunge Page and you are on your way to Freezin’ for a Reason! Check out the site for more great information about team building and fundraising ideas!
Did you know?
Special Olympics New York has 55,698 athletes training and competing year-round in 22 Olympics-style sports. Our athletes and their families or caregivers are NEVER CHARGED to participate! It costs $400 to support training and competition for one athlete for one sports season. Set your Plunge goal at $400 and you have sponsored an athlete for an entire season!
