2019 Fishkill Polar Plunge

If you think it’s cold out inside, just imagine jumping into a freezing body of water in the middle of winter.
It may warm you to know, that it’s all for a good cause – to raise money for the Special Olympics!

The 21st annual Fishkill Polar Plunge will take place this Saturday, February 16th at The Fresh Air Fund's Sharpe Reservation with two plunge times – 10 am and 1pm.

The Polar Plunge fundraising event for the Special Olympics was founded by retired police officer Chris Hamel, who also serves as the committee's chairman in Fishkill.

Those ready to freeze for a reason, can sign-up as an individual, with a team or you may sign-up on the day of the event. To chicken to take the plunge? Raise $100 and you'll still get the official Polar Plunge sweatshirt! To sign-up in advance, or for more information, please visit: polarplungeny.org/fishkill

The event not only raises money to benefit the athletes of Special Olympics New York, but awareness of the organization and the wonderful athletes competing under our banner.
