46th Annual Special Olympics Rhode Island Penguin Plunge
Robin Grimm

A Message From Robin Grimm

Several years ago, I completed an item on my bucket list - to jump in the ocean on New Years Day. I decided to do the Penguin Plunge - as it raises money for Special Olympics RI, an organization where all donations stay local - i.e. support local athletes. The reward has been immense....I have had the pleasure of getting to know some of these amazing athletes and am humbled that through the years, my friends, family, and co-workers have helped me raise approximately 60K!!! Once again, I ask you to consider giving if you can - and if you can't, please help spread the word if others might be able to help!

Special Olympics Rhode Island is one of the state’s most dynamic programs, providing over 1,600 year-round sports training and athletic competition opportunities to more than 4,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Special Olympics Rhode Island hosts over 40 statewide tournaments and competitions each year in 20 official and demonstration sports.

 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.
