Take the Plunge

November 23, 2010

By Brianne Harrison

What are your plans for Thanksgiving weekend? Sure, you could spend it in a tryptophan-induced snooze after gobbling some leftovers…or you could head up to Crystal Lake in Oakland for the Thanks “4” Giving Turkey Plunge!

Now, maybe it sounds crazy to jump in a lake in late November (and, ok, maybe it is a little crazy), but it raises money for a good cause and gives you some serious bragging rights when you get back in the office on Monday. While some will boast about how many slices of pie they managed to pack in, you can say you plunged into a chilly lake to raise funds for Special Olympics New Jersey. I think that’s worth being a little cold for a few minutes. Plus, ‘plungers’ get to enjoy a post-plunge bash with an all-you-can-gobble-up buffet for free (non-plungers who want to party will have to pay $10).

Check in is from 10 to 11:45 a.m. on Saturday, followed by the plunge at 12 noon. For more information and a registration form, visit sonj.org.
