46th Annual Special Olympics Rhode Island Penguin Plunge
Andy McLeavey

A Message From Andy McLeavey

I have been jumping into the ocean every Christmas morning for the past 3-4 years for an adventure, and this year I decided that I really wanted it to be a meaningful plunge. I came across this plunge while searching online, and was immediately drawn in that it supports the Special Olympics, an event that I love and that is very important to me. I'm excited to be able to be a part of something meaningful this Holiday Season, and I really appreciate you all and hope someone will support me and my plunge this year as I do it for the Special Olympics. Thanks so much :)
