Please join us on February 3, 2019, for the Long Beach Polar Bears Super Bowl Splash benefiting Make-A-Wish Metro New York. Swimmers will meet at Riverside Beach, Long Beach, New York (between Riverside Blvd. and Broadway). The fun starts at 12:30 pm, culminating with the ocean plunge at 1:30 pm.
The annual Super Bowl Splash is held in honor and loving memory of young Paulie Bradley, who passed away at the age of 4 before being able to receive his wish.
Through their annual, community-driven Super Bowl Splash, the Long Beach Polar Bears have helped to make hundreds of heartfelt wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions come true. They have raised over $6.3 million since the first jump in 2000.
This event has inspired thousands of caring and daring people to jump into the ocean for a good cause. Former wish kids, Make-A-Wish volunteers, staff and board members are signed up to join the jump. During last year’s Super Bowl Splash, over 10,000 people were on the beach and nearly $500,000 was raised to grant the wishes of kids with life-threatening medical conditions.
