Asbury Park Goes Cold Turkey: Special Olympics Fundraiser


‘Tis the season to be “freezin’ for a reason” — for a great cause.

This Saturday, November 4, at the Grand Arcade of Convention Hall, Asbury Park will kick off the 2017-18 Jersey Shore cold-weather swimfest season by hosting a Thanks4Giving Plunge to raise funds for the New Jersey Special Olympics.

But the Thanks4Giving Plunge is SO much more than just an icy dip in the Atlantic! Special Olympics New Jersey provides year-round sports training, competition, leadership opportunities and health screenings to more than 25,000 athletes. All these programs and services are always completely FREE thanks to fundraising events like the Thanks4Giving Plunge.

There’s still time to be a participant — you can register online until Nov. 1. Or you can take a drier, warmer route by donating.

Hmmm…on second thought, maybe spending Thanksgiving in an oven ISN’T such a bad idea…
