We want to thank the Crew Cares and the Team for aligning with us in our devotion to support NY Special Olympics in any way that they could. Some plunged together as a team and others raised money. We had a good turn out for our 1st year as a Crew Team. We had 23/80 sign up, but only 14 Plunged. We raised $745 out of goal of $1,500.
The second phase of the fund raiser was for The Crew Team to challenge ALL Rye HS Athletic Teams to a NY Special Olympics Polar Plunge Challenge. Although the RHS Hockey team started before us, their amazing effort won The Challenge. They were presented with a Polar Bear Trophy and the Coaches graciously honored The Crew Team Challenge and plunged In TUTUs to support their team! Our goal for next year is 100% Crew Team participation in the Plunge and to win The Challenge and see Stan & Catherine plunge in TUTUs!
