The Winsted Penguin Plunge

The Winsted Penguin Plunge will be held Saturday, March 3, 2018 at the Highland Lake Boat Launch, 278 Lake St., Winsted, CT 06098. This is the “largest grass roots fundraiser to benefit Special Olympics CT.”

Entrants, who must be 8 years old or more, are asked to raise a minimum of $100 each to participate in the Penguin Plunge, but there are great incentive prizes for those who meet higher fundraising levels. Those who do not want to take the plunge can still participate in the fundraising effort. Entrants are asked to raise their funds early enough to bring them the day of the event.

The Plunge day schedule is as follows:
