We’ll be Freezin’ for a Reason on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. when the CSEA Southern Region participates in the Fishkill Polar Plunge, a fundraiser for Special Olympics New York.
The Fishkill Polar Plunge has become an annual tradition here in the Southern Region. There are many ways in which our members, family and friends can help raise funds to sponsor athletic events for individuals with disabilities:
JOIN OUR TEAM! Take the plunge with fellow CSEA members and friends. You can sign up by clicking on our team page at https://tinyurl.com/CSEAPlunge2018 and clicking “JOIN TEAM.” Participants are asked to raise a minimum of $100 in order to take the plunge. Those reaching the $100 minimum will receive a free Polar Plunge hooded sweatshirt. If you’d like to be on the team but aren’t up to jumping, there is a “too chicken to jump” option. In addition to online donations, you can download and print this pledge sheet to log cash and check donations that are turned in on the day of the plunge.
MAKE A DONATION! Every single dollar collected for Special Olympics will help make a difference in the lives of these athletes. Donations are tax-deductible and can most easily be made online by clicking on our team page. Those wishing to donate via check should make the check payable to Special Olympics (with CSEA Southern Region on the memo line) and mail it to Special Olympics New York, 1207 Route 9, Suite 1C, Wappingers Falls, NY 12590.
SPREAD THE WORD! Word of mouth marketing is our greatest tool! Please spread the word with your fellow CSEA members, family and friends. You can post this web posting or our team page on your social media accounts. You can also help by posting printed materials on your union bulletin boards. Print this flyer to post on your union bulletin boards and promote the Fishkill Polar Plunge. For those needing additional information, we also have this list of Frequently Asked Questions available for printing. We also have these printable mini-flyers, perfect for personalizing and handing out to your fellow CSEA members!
Here in the Southern Region, CSEA members have raised tens of thousands of dollars to help Special Olympians in the Hudson Valley. Let’s keep that momentum going. No donation is too small!
Anyone with questions regarding the Fishkill Polar Plunge should contact Jessica Ladlee at the Southern Region Office at 845.831.1000, ext. 2084.
