A Message From Bo Mathews

I'm joining the Super Plungers on March 25th & 26th for 24 hours of plunging once an hour on the hour, all to benefit the great athletes of Special Olympics Rhode Island. WE PLUNGE FOR A PURPOSE AND FREEZE FOR A REASON This will be my ninth super plunge and I could not be more excited for this one. There are many inquiries as to why we do what we do? 24 hours of sleep deprivation, sand blasted with the howling winds off of Salty Brine Beach, frigid water temps and sometimes even sub zero degree temperatures. To me it is simple. I can challenge myself for this time period, raise funds and awareness for these athletes that results in a self pride that is unmatchable! To be a firsthand witness to many athletes whom I have seen grow over these years is amazing. WE PLUNGE FOR A PURPOSE AND FREEZE FOR A REASON I would be honored to have you donate to my fundraising page and if you so feel the need to experience a dip into the Atlantic you know where I will be for those 24 hours!!
