United Cerebral Palsy is hoping to generate some excitement and get more swimmers signed up for this year's Polar Bear Plunge. You are invited to "chill out" at the 5th annual ucpn Polar Bear Plunge on Sunday, March 1, at Theodore Roosevelt Park in Oyster Bay to benefit The United Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County, Inc. (ucpn).
Festivities start at 12:30 p.m. and the swim will start at 1:30 p.m. Help raise funds for a cause that'll warm your heart! Enjoy a DJ and free coffee, soup, and hot dogs prepared by Oyster Bay firefighters while you watch!
Last year Dee Berger, the principal of the ucpn school raised $10,000 by dipping all 10 toes in the icy water of Oyster Bay Harbor.
The proceeds raised through this fun event will benefit the over 1,800 children and adults with disabilities who receive services through ucpn. The ucpn has been assisting individuals with disabilities since 1948.
Contact Mary Brosky at 378-2000 extension 353 or go to
www.ucpn.org for info and print out a swimmers registration form.
"We are looking forward to having a lot of the community come join in the fun!," said Ms. Brosky.
