"I am honored to be invited to participate in this year's Monroe "Plunge at the Park," said Fortt. The Special Olympics Connecticut has long captured a special place in my heart. Like so many others I have been inspired by the fearlessness of Special Olympic participants," said Fortt. "I look forward to taking the plunge to help raise funds for a truly great organization," he added.
Fortt and other "fearless," participants are challenged by the Monroe Police Department and Special Olympics Connecticut, to run, jump, or dive into the frigid Great Hollow Lake on Saturday, April 2nd, 2016 and make this year’s 6th Annual “Plunge at the Park” a great success! All who are 8 years old and over are invited to take the plunge to support local Special Olympics athletes. Participants should wear a costume, team jersey, or bathing suit. Towels and water shoes are recommended. Event t-shirts will be provided. Those who are underage or do not wish to brave the icy waters of a small town lake can show their support by purchasing an "I'm a Chicken" t-shirt. A minimum donation of $50 per plunger and signed waiver form are required of each participant. (If a plunger is under 18, a parent or guardian’s signature is also required.) Spectators are welcome.
