BRANT BEACH - The 14th Annual Super “Plunge” Sunday is scheduled for Super Bowl Sunday, February 4, 2018 at 1:00 PM.  Participants are invited to brave the icy, cold Atlantic Ocean, and will have plenty of time to be home for the big game.

Super Plunge XIV, a fundraiser organized by St. Francis Community Center and the Swim Teams of Southern Regional High School, will take place at the 48th Street Beach in the Brant Beach section of Long Beach Township.  The “Plunge” has become a popular community favorite during the winter doldrums on Long Beach Island.  The event grows in participation each year. 

Pre-registration is required.  Registration will take place at the Community Center on Saturday,
