MT. SINAI — CSEA’s Town of Brookhaven members were ‘freezin’ for a reason’ at the Town of Brookhaven’s 9th Annual Polar Plunge.
Members braved the cold waters at Cedar Beach in order to raise money for the Special Olympics; this year, members raised $1,500.
Special Olympics is an international organization, which promotes inclusion, acceptance and understanding to people with intellectual disabilities.
If you would like to donate or participate in a polar plunge visit: specialolympics-ny.org.
