I've never done this before and it's something I'm going to remember for a long time.

2013-14 Penguin Plunges

Freezin' for a Reason

Don't miss the opportunity to run, jump or dive into the chilly waters of Connecticut. Last Year thousands of "Penguins" took the plunge statewide to raise much needed funding for Special Olympics Connecticut.

"Penguins" solicit donations from family, friends and local businesses in order to take the plunge. Incentive prizes for money raised and individual and group awards are given in a number of different categories. Sign up now for a plunge near you!
