Tips for Plunge Day - What to bring!
Remember to pack a towel and water shoes (old sneakers, crocs, etc. -
something for your feet!)

Wear your swimsuit or what you decide to wear under
your clothes so you'll be ready for the Plunge fun

Bring along easy to slip-into warm clothes and shoes for
after the Plunge

For your safety, NEVER dive into the water

Bring a plastic bag for wet clothes, and a waterproof
backpack or bag to store your dry clothes

A disposable, waterproof camera is a great way to
capture a Plunger's view of the excitement

Invite a pal to witness, photograph and have a towel
at the ready for when you leave the water

Help raise money for the athletes of
Special Olympics New York by asking your friends,
family, co-workers, etc. to support you
in taking the PLUNGE!
Then, take a dip or slow crawl into
the chilly waters.

Special Olympics New York has 67,162 (2015 census)

It costs $400 to support training and

Set your Plunge goal at $400 and you have
sponsored an athlete for an entire season!
