Chill out for '14: Club sets 11th 'Polar Plunge' New Year's Day
The Team Mossman Triathlon Club will again put the Brrrrr! into New Year's Day while raising money for Westport-based Save the Children.
The club's 11th annual Polar Plunge -- a group dip into chilly Long Island Sound -- is planned New Year's morning at Compo Beach. The public is invited to join the fundraiser.
Participants will gather at the beach at 9:30 a.m. on Jan. 1, and the plunge is planned at 10 a.m. Participants need not be athletes, the group said, but thermal wetsuits are not allowed.
Participants may register at the Mossman website -- www.teaammossman.com -- where they can choose among fundraising options, the club said.
Donations also may be made at www.fundraising.active.com, the club said.
Save the Children a global relief agency that provides aid to children in the U.S. and abroad. Team Mossman Triathlon Club said it serves multi-sport athletes of all ages and abilities.
