Taking the Plunge

In spite of last weekends unseasonable warm temperatures, taking a plunge into the cold Atlantic Ocean in the winter seems crazy. Unless, you are talking about The Passion Plunge, which raises money for Special Olympics Massachustts.  It's a wild idea-teams are formed, people pledge money and committed (and slightly crazy) people jump into Nantasket and Revere Beach. Our Adult Services Special Olympics Program had a team of plungers under the direction of Team Captain and Volunteer Coordinator Margaret Lelakes (who by the way won for "best costume"-she's the duck in yellow). They raised over $1500 in the plunge for our team and together with other donations, have ensured that our spring and summer teams are set for their upcoming seasons. Thank you to our Cardinal Cushing Plungers and those who sat in the "chicken coop" instead of jumping into the sea.
