FROM JEN MARSHALL:
My name is Jen Marshall and I am contacting you on behalf of Special Olympics Munster.
For the past 2 years Special Olympics has organised a fundraising event in Kinsale called the Polar plunge where we ask people to bravely jump into icy waters whilst raising money for Special Olympics Munster.
This year’s plunge is being organised by a group of 10 enthusiastic Special Olympic athletes and volunteers and we hope to have family, friends and supporters all jump off the main pier in Kinsale town centre for charity.
I know that the Myrtleville Swimmers have been extremely kind over the years with your support and we would be extremely grateful members might consider supporting our Athletes once again by taking part in the event on the day.
The event takes place on the main pier in Kinsale (beside the Trident Hotel) on the Saturday 30th of November from 10.30. We would be honoured if people might consider taking part after their Saturday morning swim at 9 or even as an alternative to it, we would welcome all with open arms. There is an early bird registration for which I have embedded a link below – or people can turn up and register on the day.
It should be a fun local event with singers from the Kinsale choir, members of the local Gardai and most importantly our Athletes who will be there leading the mornings jump.
Hoping to hear from you soon.
