Thank you, Monroe. We are so grateful for all of you who came out to show your support for those who plunged for the Monroe Police Department’s 2nd Annual “Plunge at the Park” charity event benefiting Special Olympics Connecticut. Because members of the Monroe community and the EMS, fire, and police departments have such caring, warm hearts, over 68 enthusiastic “penguins” plunged into the chilly water at Great Hollow Lake in Wolfe Park on Sunday, December 11, 2011 to demonstrate support for our family, friends, and neighbors with intellectual disabilities.

The Monroe Police Department, Special Olympics Connecticut, and Magas Media Consultants, LLC would like to invite you to run, jump, or dive into Great Hollow Lake on Dec 11th and make this year’s 2nd Annual “Plunge at the Park” a great success! Check out our video from last year’s event!
We also wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to those of you who came out to support us during the plunge – yes, both Jennifer, Mackenzie (only 5 years old!), and RJ (only 3 years old!) Magas braved the icy cold waters of Great Hollow Lake! Special thanks to our family, friends, and colleagues who donated their time or who contributed online donations to this worthwhile cause. Our “Magas Family Plunge” was in honor of Cousin Ryan O’Malley whose spirit was with us when we plunged into the icy waters; his enthusiasm and passion for fundraising kept us warm on that cold day!
Because of your generosity last year’s event raised $3500, and by the end of last Sunday’s event we have already doubled that total (final count pending as donations are still coming in). Please enjoy the photos and videos of the sunny and brisk day where you can see the enthusiasm and joy on the faces of those who plunged and those who came to support them. During this holiday season of giving, we gratefully thank you. We also look forward to seeing you at the lake again next year for another wild and crazy….and meaningful plunge! Happy Holidays to you and your family!
