Registration is now open for the Virtual Penguin Plunge! Register HERE. Complimentary Penguin Plunge face masks will be sent to the first 150 people to register.
The Penguin Plunge is a marquee fundraising event for Special Olympics Connecticut. For 2021 participants are asked to register ($25 fundraising fee), fundraise an additional $100 (incentive prizes begin at $500), and do their "Virtual" Penguin Plunge at home.
While Penguin Plunge season may look a little different this year, our goal at Special Olympics Connecticut is to bring together our community of supporters both far and wide. Participants may choose to do their Penguin Plunge anytime, anywhere. Some suggestions include: take a cold shower, roll around in the snow, dump some ice on your head, or get in a water balloon fight, or take a dip in the hot tub. The possibilities are endless and the more creative the better! In keeping with Penguin Plunge tradition, costumes are encouraged!
