The Polar Bear Plunges for Special Olympics New Jersey are fundraising events in which participants pledge $100 or more to take a brazen romp into the chilly waters of the Atlantic Ocean in the middle of Winter. Crazy? We think so. And we know lots of folks who agree ... and who still take the Plunge for Special Olympics New Jersey year after year.
The annual Plunge, scheduled for February 23, 2013, has grown to more than 5,000 participants who travel from as far as California to be a part of the fun. Check-in begins at 9 a.m. with the Plunge scheduled for 1 p.m.
Radio station NJ 101.5’s Big Joe Henry, “the Voice of the Plunge” broadcasts live from the site of the Plunge, with interviews, updates and a countdown to Plunge you won’t want to miss.
