Town Announces Polar Plunge Date
In August, Lesko and Councilwoman Jane Bonner announced the second annual Town of Brookhaven Polar Plunge will take place on Saturday, November 19, 2011 at Cedar Beach in Mt. Sinai.
Lesko said last year he braved the icy water of Cedar Beach in November with 350 fellow plungers.
“I encourage everyone to plunge this year with your neighbors, friends, and of course Special Olympics athletes to make their dreams possible,” said Lesko in a statement.
Residents can visit the Polar Plunge site to get more information and start obtaining pledges. On the day of the event, registration will take place on November 19 between 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. and the Plunge will happen at noon.
