The Polar Plunge
The Polar Plunge is an annual event sponsored by the Ancient Order of Hibernians of Monmouth County, a Catholic menís organization. The purpose of the event is to raise money for Catholic schools. The participants of the event raise pledge money in order to participate and then they have the pleasure of jumping into the ocean on a cold January Sunday. If they do not want to dive into the ocean themselves, students, families and friends can pledge money to sponsor someone or just make a donation to St James. Please see the Polar Plunge Frequently Asked Questions link below for more information and additional links to the sign up or sponsor form.
