Where Are The Cleanest Beaches In The Us

Events continue to Saturday

For those ready to “take the plunge” into the freezing waters of Lake Erie, the “Buffalo Polar Plunge” is nearly here.

The weekend’s festivities will commence with the Woodlawn Beach Cleanup from 10 a.m. to noon Thursday. Diving teams from the Hamburg Town Police, New York State Police, New York State Park Police, and Erie County Sheriff's Office will clean Lake Erie’s Woodlawn Beach to prepare for the Polar Plunges.

Next, on Friday, schools from across Western New York will participate in the first “Cool School Challenge” at Woodlawn Beach State Park. Two high school students will also be awarded the First Student Scholarship of $1,000.

Then on Saturday, nearly 800 brave souls will participate in the 15th annual “Buffalo Polar Plunge” to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics New York athletes in the Western Region.

Organizers said, “The ‘Polar Plunge’ is one of the most popular, profitable, and exciting fundraisers for Special Olympics New York. Participants raise money by asking friends, family, colleagues and acquaintances for donations.”

Special Olympics New York President and CEO Stacey Hengsterman said, “ ‘Polar Plunges’ are some of the most valuable fundraisers we host each year. They’re an excellent opportunity for people from all over the community to come together and support our athletes. If you join us, you’ll see why so many people return year after year.”

At this event last year, 350 participants raised $105,000. Individuals and teams who’d like to join this year’s event may do so by registering online at polarplungeny.org/Buffalo.
