COVID doesn’t stop CSEA support of Special Olympics
Thank you to EVERYONE who has supported our CSEA Southern Region team participating in the 2021 Fishkill Polar Plunge!
For over a decade, our region has had a team take part in this event, which funds athletic opportunities for individuals with disabilities through Special Olympics New York. This year’s plunge looked different due to COVID-19 restrictions, with most participants raising funds virtually. However, two determined CSEA activists did take the plunge at Sharpe Reservation: Kathleen Pugliese from our Ulster Correctional Facility Local and Ed Timberger from our Fishkill Correctional Facility Local!
Our fundraising this year totaled over $12,000, making us third in overall fundraising for the Fishkill Polar Plunge. The over $155,000 raised will allow up to 388 athletes to participate in Special Olympics activities.
