Celebrating Special Olympics New York's 50th Anniversary

This year Special Olympics New York celebrates a remarkable 50 years of giving athletes not only the opportunity to play and enjoy a sport, but to become a champion

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 of the Long Island Sound. 

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

All participants will receive community service hours!
