Take the Plunge for Special Olympics
By Katie McFadden
Spring is right around the
corner, so why not kick off
the season with a dip in the
ocean? On Saturday, March
25, hundreds will be Freezin’
For a Reason at the third an-
nual Rockaway Polar Plunge
benefitting Special Olympics
New York.
Last year, more than 300
people jumped into the ocean
and many more looked on
during this new annual tradi-
tion. From friends, to families,
to business owners and even
Special Olympics athletes,
everyone took the plunge for
a good cause. Organizers are
hoping to have even more par-
ticipation this year. They’re
set out with a goal of raising
$60,000 to support Special
Olympics New York programs,
one of which takes place at St.
Camillus in Rockaway. Last
year’s plunge raised $37,000.
With the event less than 10
days away, nearly $20,000 has
been raised so far, but organ-
izers are hoping they’ll close
in on their big goal with more
participation.
The event takes place at Bay
9 in Riis Park on Saturday,
March 25, with day-of registra-
tion starting at 10 a.m. Partic-
ipants will take the plunge at
noon and will then be able to
dry off and head to the Bunga-
low Bar on Beach 92nd Street
to warm up at the after-par-
ty. The after-party, from 12:30
p.m. to 2 p.m., will feature food
and plenty of fun. The plunge
is dedicated in memory of one
of Rockaway’s own special
athletes and a former employ-
ee of the Bungalow Bar, Emi-
ly Hutton, who passed away
in August 2014. Team Emily’s
Favorites will be taking the
plunge in honor of Emily.
Every Plunger that rais-
es $150 receives an official
Plunge sweatshirt and will re-
ceive even more great prizes
for raising more money. For
those who are “Too Chicken to
Plunge,” there will be a chick-
en coop for spectators to take
pictures, and “Too Chicken to
Plunge” t-shirts will be avail-
able for purchase. If you don’t
want to plunge, but raise $150,
you will still receive an official
Polar Plunge sweatshirt.
Special Olympics New York
has 67,162 (2015 census) ath-
letes training and compet-
ing year-round in 22 Olym-
pics-style sports. The athletes
and their families or caregivers
are never charged to partici-
pate. It costs $400 to support
training and competition for
one athlete for one sports sea-
son. If you set your plunge goal
at $400, you’ll support an ath-
lete for an entire season.
