The 2022 Penguin Plunge Season is here...
Take the plunge into icy waters to support more than 12,000 athletes of all abilities who participate in the sports training and competitions Special Olympics Connecticut offers year-round. All are invited to participate in the Plunge, including individuals, friends and families, and teams representing schools, businesses, organizations, and clubs.
To join in the fun, participants must be at least 8 years old and need to raise a minimum of $100. In addition to the awards for top fundraisers and best costumes, participants receive incentive prizes for their fundraising efforts. Spectators are welcome.
We will be offering both in-person & virtual Penguin Plunge options in 2022!
