Long Beach Polar Bears Super Bowl Splash
Sunday, February 7th, 2016 12:30 PMThe 17th Annual Super Bowl Splash is held in honor and loving memory of young Paulie Bradley, who passed away at the age of 4 before being able to receive his wish. Through their annual, community-driven Super Bowl Splash, the Long Beach Polar Bears have helped to make hundreds of heartfelt wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions come true. They have raised over $4.8 million since the first jump in 2000.
Over the past 16 years, the event has inspired thousands of caring and daring people to jump into the ocean for a good cause. Former wish kids, Make-A-Wish volunteers, staff and board members are signed up to join the jump. During last year's Super Bowl Splash, over 10,000 people were on the beach and $528,000 was raised to grant the wishes of kids with life-threatening medical conditions.
The City of Long Beach will provide free shuttle buses to and from the event beginning at 10:30AM and running until 2:30PM. Leave your cars at home and hop on a shuttle bus! Look for the Polar Bear sign displayed in the shuttle bus window.
