A Message From Elwood Johnson

The waves rolling onto Salty Brine Beach are near freezing in March, and plunging into the ocean at 12am and every hour thereafter tests one's sheer will and sleep deprivation limits. I do this event to help raise awareness and funds for the amazing athletes with intellectual disabilities who are empowered by Special Olympics Rhode Island. Charlie Kolb has been my Super Plunge inspiration over the last ten years. We are promoting tolerance, acceptance and inclusion for all people with intellectual disabilities. Please consider helping us by donating to this life changing cause. Thank you.
