THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family,

Once again, it is that time of the year where I start to think about facing the icy waters of the Long Island Sound in the name of charity. In what started out as a New Years Day group plunge, I am now faced with the challenge of polar plunging solo (by myself) due to the fact that I am in Michigan on New Year’s Day. About 5 years ago, when I realized I would be in Michigan for most NYE's, I decided that my time plunging was up and I had earned my icy stripes BUT due to the AWESOME support of my family, Hole In The Wall Gang and ALL of YOU ( I love CAPS!),  I keep plunging solo and will do so until medically unable. Your kindness means the world to me but more importantly to these seriously ill children who, because of your generosity, can experience camp just like their peers. I welcome you to join me at Compo Beach in Westport, CT on 12/20/13 at 11am to cheer me on as I do my fifth annual SOLO polar plunge. Thank You! 

Much Love,

Jonas

About Hole In The Wall: 

Our Purpose
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is dedicated to providing “a different kind of healing” to seriously ill children and their families throughout the Northeast, free of charge. It’s a community that celebrates the fun, friendship and spirit of childhood where every kid can “raise a little hell.”

Our Goal
To ensure that every child with a serious medical condition has the chance to experience the world of possibilities that camp has to offer. Through the generosity of others, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp community provides this unique healing experience to kids in need and their families, including those who may not be able to come to Camp.

Our Founder
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp was founded in 1988 by Paul Newman with one simple premise in mind, that every child, no matter their illness, could experience the transformational spirit and friendships that go hand in hand with camp.

Paul Newman, while a successful actor, was also a visionary with the heart of a child. His personality, playfulness and mischievousness are infused within every corner of Camp, from the pirate flag he raised on the tree house to the days he spent on the lake fishing with campers. 

With unobtrusive expert medical care, it was Paul’s dream that Camp would provide seriously ill children with a fun-filled experience defined by compassion, laughter and acceptance.
