The Icy Plunge for the Cure

The Icy Plunge for the Cure

Saturday January 28th

West Haven's Savin Rock Beach


Participants in the 17th Icy Plunge for the Cure, a longtime winter tradition, can break out the arctic swimwear Saturday, Jan. 28, at Savin Rock Beach.

The 9:30 a.m. event, presented by the city’s Breast Cancer Awareness Committee, benefits breast cancer research and education.

Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. in the Savin Rock Conference Center, 6 Rock St.

The first 100 people to register will receive “plungewear.” The top fundraiser will receive a prize.

Participants will wait on the beach for the signal to charge into Long Island Sound. Wetsuits are not allowed.

Last January, snow postponed the plunge for the first time in 16 years, with it taking place in February — also for the first time.

Since its inception in 2001, the committee has collected more than $780,000 for the cause, said Human Resources Commissioner Beth A. Sabo, a founding committee member.

An estimated 200 people took part in last year’s plunge, which netted about $32,000.

And organizers anticipate another good turnout this year, with plunge veterans Mayor Edward M. O’Brien and his 16-year-old son, David, returning for the frosty dip.

Several city, police and fire departments are forming teams and issuing challenges to one another to help raise the stakes and more money.

Sabo said the plunge is a celebration of survivors and a remembrance of loved ones who have died of the disease.

Registration forms are available in the Department of Human Resources on the second floor of City Hall, 355 Main St.

Pledges for the plunge must be handed in the day of the event, Sabo said. Checks are payable to the West Haven Breast Cancer Awareness Program.

Proceeds have previously gone to the Yale Breast Center at Yale New Haven’s Smilow Cancer Hospital and Looking Forward, an education and wellness program for cancer patients at Smilow.

For information, call committee member Jennifer Cavallaro at 203-937-3619 or Sabo at 203-937-3558. To sponsor the plunge, call Cavallaro or Sabo.

Send donation checks to the West Haven Breast Cancer Awareness Program, Department of Human Resources, 355 Main St., West Haven, CT 06516.

IRIS provides refugees with housing, food, clothing, and services such as education, English training, job preparation and placement, health care, and immigration legal aid.
