2010 Polar Plunge Cedar Beach, LI

On Saturday November 20, I attended the Cedar Beach Polar Plunge to benefit the New York Special Olympics. While back on Long Island for the weekend I decided to check out the Cedar Beach Polar Plunge in Mount Sinai. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect, but when I got there it was a great time. It was amazing how many people came out on a Saturday morning in 50 degree weather wearing bathing suits ready to run down the beach and dive in to the salty water. Although I didn’t dive in myself, it was just good to be there raising money and supporting the cause. So many people were eager and ready to jump in and with life guards, scuba teams, and EMS crews standing by a few waves of people ran into the chilly water and quickly ran back out to the comfort of blankets and dry cloths. Altogether it was a great experience and it was said they raised around 25,000 dollars, so it was a successful event as well.
