2023 Westchester Polar Plunge

November 11, 2023 @ 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

For the first time in nearly ten years, the Special Olympics New York’s “Westchester Polar Plunge” will take place at Playland in Rye on Saturday, November 11, 2023 at 11:30 am. Community members of all ages will brave the freezing waters of the Long Island Sound at Playland Beach to raise funds and show support for Special Olympics New York athletes in Westchester County and the Hudson Valley region. Sponsored by Curry Automotive, this year’s fundraiser will feature over 1,000+ plungers from all over Westchester County, including local law enforcement, firefighters, families, local high school groups and many other participants. Any participating student will also receive 10 hours of community service. A DJ will be on-site to energize the crowd with upbeat tunes, while the Bona Bona F&B truck and Playland’s pop-up shop will also be available to keep participants (and supporters) warm with coffee and hot chocolate post-plunge.

The Polar Plunge is one of the most popular, profitable, and exciting fundraisers for the Special Olympics New York. Participants raise money by asking friends, family, colleagues, and acquaintances for donations that help to provide year-round sports training and competition for individuals with intellectual disabilities in communities across the state.
