Do this Polar Plunge with me and raise money for the Special Olympics!

by Darren Meenan February 19, 2018 0 Comments

I've been slacking BIG TIME on this, but it's not too late to join The 7 Line Army team on Saturday March 3rd in Port Washington. This is the 14th annual "Freezin' For A Reason" Polar Plunge to benefit the Special Olympics. I took the dip in Long Beach on Super Bowl Sunday a few times, but this will be my first in Port Washington.


Saturday, March 3, 2018
North Hempstead Beach Park, Port Washington
Registration 10:00AM to 11:30PM
Plunge at NOON

We were contacted by a member of The 7 Line Army who is helping organize the event, and I jumped at the chance to say yes. I didn't commit nearly as much time as I had hoped to recruit other members, or to raise money, but we still have enough time to get this going. Please join if you can.

This plunge is to raise money for the athletes of the Special Olympics New York. 68,547 athletes train and compete year-round in 22 Olympics-style sports. The athletes and their families or caregivers are never charged to participate, and it costs $400 to support training and competition for one athlete for one sports season.

I aimed high and set the goal at 100 members for our team. Right now it's at a whopping.... drum roll... 4. 

If you can find it in your heart to join the plunge, I'd love to have you on the team. Sure, it's cold, but it's for a great cause, and it's somehow a really fun time even if you hate the cold.

Dippers get creative, and the day turns in to a really fun party. Costumes, themes, tailgating, the whole 9. Have fun with it.

If you can't commit to the plunge, but would still like to help, you can still donate to the cause.

If you're going to bash the Mets, at least do it based on facts. Jim Rome could have filled his CBS Sports Minute praising the Mets. Instead he completely butchered the truth, and dragged Sandy Alderson through the mud for no good reason.

Late last night Pete Alonso sprinkled a little pixie dust in the eyes of those clamoring for the Mets to bring back the black jerseys in 2021. Distractions are needed right now, and if a piece of fabric can do that for people, have at it.
