2018 Polar Plunge

Memory of Kay

It’s that time of year again! We are gearing up for the 7th Annual 2018  RI CAN Ocean House Marina Polar Plunge!

Please join us and start the year off freezing for a reason! All proceeds from this event go directly to assisting local families in need.   We hope to raise $40,000 again this year and need your help to do it.

We have another great line up to kick off the year and make this event a great day.  As always, we like to see you at Charlestown Beach by 11:30 for registration with the plunge scheduled for 12 noon sharp!   Immediately after the splash, head to the Breach Way Grill where Craig Marr and his amazing staff will help us warm up with great grub and thirst quenching libations.   Also, BoatCake (Art Smith and Pat Cozzalino), will come out of retirement for this event and keep us moving to the music while we kick off the year doing something great for our community.

This year’s event is dedicated to the loving memory of Kay Beaudreau who was a long time board member and volunteer of RI Can.

Please join us and start the year off freezing for a reason!
