Over 200 Bergen County residents are expected to be among the more than 4,000 participants.
This is a great cause so we wanted to help spread the word…. Special Olympics New Jersey has announced that approximately 200 residents of Bergen County are expected to participate in their Feb. 27 Polar Bear Plunge at Seaside Heights. This year more than 4,000 people are expected to take the Plunge into the frigid Atlantic Ocean for Special Olympics New Jersey in what will be the biggest Plunge yet.
For those interested in taking the Plunge and supporting the more than 21,000 Special Olympics athletes in New Jersey, there is still time to sign up. On-line registration will be accepted until midnight on Feb. 24, or you can register on-site beginning at 9 a.m. on Feb. 27 outside the Aztec Ocean Resort.
The Polar Bear Plunge is a Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics New Jersey event, presented by the NJ State PBA, the Aztec Ocean Resort and NJ 101.5. This year’s event will once again be broadcast live by The Voice of the Plunge, NJ 101.5’s own Big Joe Henry. Lunch will be provided to all Plungers by area restaurants.
