Please join us on February 2, 2020, for the 20th Anniversary Long Beach Polar Bears Super Bowl Splash benefiting Make-A-Wish Metro New York. Swimmers will meet at Riverside Beach, Long Beach, New York (between Riverside Blvd. and Broadway). The fun starts at 11:00 am, culminating with the ocean plunge at 12:00 pm.
The 20th Annual Super Bowl Splash is held in honor and loving memory of young Paulie Bradley, who passed away at the age of 4 before being able to receive his wish.
Since 2000, we have raised an astonishing $7 million to grant wishes of children with critical illnesses. The Polar Bears are motivated by camaraderie, a touch of madness and a common goal: To honor the memory of Paulie Bradley and to keep his young spirit alive in others.
