(Page 3 of 3)

Roughly 6,000 people dashed into the ocean at Sunday’s Polar Bear Super Bowl Splash.

“Years ago, Make-A-Wish helped my family — my son was sick. It’s an unbelievable organization,” said Tom Ryan, of Bellmore, who has been coming to the Splash for eight years. “I recruit people to come down. Every year is better than the last.”

Bradley said that it’s too emotional for him to meet the “wish kids,” but he said he loves that they come and take the plunge. “They’ve got the most courage out of anyone,” he said.
