Freezin' for a Reason Saturday, March 23, 2013
Jennings Beach, Fairfield
Freezin Logo What is Freezin' for a Reason? Freezin' is a fun event where adults and kids jump into the chilly waters of LI Sound to raise money for Wakeman. Participants receive pledges from family and friends to support their plunge. And fear not ...the dip into the water is quick...we go in at 12pm and only the bravest are still in the water at 12:01....it is the shortest fund raising event in history!
Funds raised benefit all of the programs at Wakeman's three Clubhouses - Southport, Stratfield, and Smilow-Burroughs - and the McKinley Outreach Program. Last year, our plungers raised more than $80,000 for Wakeman programs!

In order to plunge and take part in the Post-Plunge Party you are asked to raise at least $100 if you are a Wakeman member and $200 if you are an adult. Not sure you want to take a full mid-winter swim but still want to raise money for Wakeman? You can still take part in Freezin' for a Reason by registering as a "Chicken Dipper"!
