Since 2000, the Polar Bears have raised more than $9 million to grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. The Polar Bears are motivated by camaraderie, a touch of madness, and a common goal: to honor young Paulie Bradley's memory and keep his young spirit alive in others.

Interested in getting your company or school involved in this year’s Splash? Contact Caroline Ver Planck at cverplanck@metrony.wish.org

See you on the beach!

Do not forget to fill out your swim waiver!

As a reminder, do not DIVE, FLIP, or BELLY FLOP into the water!

"Seeing the happiness in my daughter’s eyes was amazing it was pure excitement and love … Our puppy is everything that we dreamed that she would be and probably a lot more. She means the world to Mae."

Megan, Maelin-Kate’s mom

"Her wish has helped her a lot. She’s more secure and able to smile and express herself. Plus, her inner beauty now shines through her new, beautiful smile. It’s motivation to keep fighting alongside her day by day."

Carlos, Chairalis’ dad
