Celebrating a successful 2020 Fishkill Polar Plunge
We were Freezin’ for a Reason on Feb. 22 to raise funds for Special Olympics New York at the Fishkill Polar Plunge. We appreciate the many donations we have received, including some from generous CSEA locals and units!
Our team of brave Polar Plunge participants (along with our “Polar Chickens,” who raised money but stayed on land) have raised a total of $4,138, with donations still coming in. The Fishkill Polar Plunge is the main annual fundraiser that allows people with disabilities the chance to participate in Special Olympics athletic programs. You can still donate by clicking on this link to access our team fundraising page.
