This will be the 5th year in a row that adventurous people will take a cool dip in the Hudson to raise money to benefit local, ailing children. This year's event is set for March 4th from noon to 2PM at Nyack's Memorial Park. 

The event will help support 2 families with their expenses, as they concentrate their efforts on their brave and amazing children's health.  

Alex Fernandez is an outgoing 4th grader at Valley Cottage Elementary School. His sharp headaches were determined to be the result of an extremely rare type of mixed-cell brain tumor. He needs specialized radiation treatment and the funds raised by the Plunge will help. 

Francesco Galvano, a 7th grader from Pearl River was diagnosed last summer with leukemia. He began aggressive treatment, which continues. 

So, come out on March 4th, take the plunge, or just have fun watching those that do!  There will be food, music, and entertainment for the entire family.  

There is also a Penguin Plunge pasta night scheduled Friday, March 2nd from 6PM to 9PM at the Blauvelt Fire Department (548 Western Highway, Blauvelt.) Donations are $10/adult, $8 for Seniors, and $5 for children. There will be a raffle during the evening.
