The Penguin Plunge is on!

However, as with everything else in our lives this past year, it will look a little different.

Please understand that the changes we’ve made to our traditional Penguin Plunge are to limit crowding, keep everyone safe while supporting the great athletes of Special Olympics Rhode Island!

 Instead of one large plunge at noon, we will offer time slots limited to 75 plungers each:

a.       10:15amFamily-Friendly plunge; arrive between 9:30 and 9:45

b.      11:00am;arrive between 10:15 and 10:30

c.       11:45am;arrive between 11:00 and 11:15

d.      12:30pm;arrive between 11:45 and 12:00

e.    1:30pm; arrive between 12:45 and 1:00

More details about the January 1, 2022 Penguin Plunge will be emailed to each pre-registered plunger (if you don't see it, please check your Junk or Spam folder).

All plungers are encouraged to raise a minimum donation of $50 for this event.
