Seaside Heights Polar Plunge: One of these photos won $100 for Special Olympics
As of early Sunday morning, the Seaside Heights Polar Plunge had raised $1,863,666 for Special Olympics of New Jersey — and another $100 is on the way.
We challenged you to submit your best photos from the Plunge via the New Jersey 101.5 app, for a chance to have $100 donated in your name, and got dozens of fantastic entries.
More than 7,000 people took the plunge, with thousands more cheering them on from the beach and boardwalk. As he's been for 22 of the 24 years the Plunge has run, our own Big Joe Henry was on hand to emcee the whole thing — and had a blast as always.
It was a really tough call, but we're donating in honor of Steven Farias, who sent us 11 images and photos. Great job, everyone!
This year's Plunge is over, but you can still donate to Special Olympics of New Jersey.
Special Olympics of New Jersey serves more than 25,000 athletes with year-round sports training and athletic competitions — adults and children alike. It provides its programs free to registered athletes — including all training, uniforms, sports equipment, meals and housing at state competition events, and medical screenings.
