SONJ Polar Bear Plunges Go ALL VIRTUAL

Lawrenceville, NJ – Special Olympics New Jersey (SONJ), in conjunction with its sponsors, partners, and local and state authorities, has made the difficult decision to cancel the INPERSON portion of this year’s Polar Bear Plunges in Wildwood and Seaside Heights, switching both events to an ALL VIRTUAL platform. Virtual plunging is a way to keep the spirit of the annual Polar Bear Plunges alive and thriving, while maintaining proper safety measures and adhering to state and local protocols for outdoor gatherings.

“While certainly not ideal, the spirit of the plunges will live on this year through our thousands of loyal supporters,” said Heather Andersen, President and CEO of SONJ. “We encourage plungers to ‘Plunge Your Way’ and continue raising vital funds to get our athletes back on the playing fields and courts, where they belong. Your support is more important than ever.”

Instead of braving the chilly waters of the Atlantic Ocean this year, thousands of plungers will take up water balloons, super soakers, garden hoses, pools, and any other creative means necessary to take the Virtual Polar Bear Plunge, all to raise funds and awareness for over 26,000 Special Olympics New Jersey athletes.
