Hi, what are you looking for?


Take the Penguin Plunge!

penguinplungeFor those polar bears in the area, Sunday will offer the opportunity to flaunt your lack of nerve receptors (or sanity) by jumping into the Hudson river at Memorial Park.  The forecast is for snow/sleet and a high of 33 degrees.  PERFECT to prove you are made of the right stuff.
ashleygThe event is a benefit for the family of Ashley Gankiewicz, who are paying for Ashley’s medical care for her neurofibromatosis.

If you don’t have what it takes to make the plunge, you can help by sponsoring somebody who is crazy enough to do it.  Come to Memorial Park and watch the event.

Nyack People & Places, a weekly series that features photos and profiles of citizens and scenes near Nyack, NY, is sponsored by Sun River Health.
