On New Year’s Day Friday, the Westchester Triathlon Committee organized the 19th Annual Ray’s Polar Plunge at Oakland Beach.

For the 19th year running, the water was still cold. Seventy intrepid, fearless and or slightly nuts individuals ran into the Long Island Sound. The group included ten families plunging together, 41 adults and (only!) eight people in the under 21 group. The under 21 group will need to get some more game in 2022.

The event raised funds for CCALS (Compassionate Care ALS), The Challenged Athletes Foundation, SOUL RYEDERS, and Outreach Resurrection.

Of the seventy, 21 were Rye residents, ranging in age 61 to eight. If these are your neighbors, you might consider bringing them some hot chocolate to warm up!
