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. Whether you would like to plunge or support a Plunger, come join us on March 25th!

We put the FUN into FUNdraising, so this will be a fun party during registration!


Every Plunger that raises $150 receives an official Plunge sweatshirt, raise more money and receive more great prizes!

We dedicate this plunge in memory of one of our very own Special Olympics New York athletes, Emily Hutton. Team Emily's Favorites will be taking the plunge for another year in a row with us!

The fun doesn't have to stop after the plunge! Join us for our Post Plunge Party at our partners, The Bungalow Bar 12:30pm-2:00pm directly after the plunge!
