Winsted Penguin Plunge

The Winsted Penguin Plunge will be held Saturday, March 2, 2019 at the Highland Lake Boat Launch, 278 Lake St., Winsted, CT 06098. This is the “largest grass roots fundraiser to benefit Special Olympics CT.”

The Penguin Plunge is a wintertime fundraiser for Special Olympics Connecticut. Participants (“Penguins”) of all ages register and get pledges and then join with others, either as an individual or as part of a team, to jump into the cold water for fun and a great cause!

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:

10:00 am Registration

The money raised through Penguin Plunges benefit over 12,000 athletes and Unified Sports® partners state-wide who participate year-round in 27 different sports training and athletic competitions for children and adults with intellectual disabilities and their peers without disabilities. The Penguin Plunge is one of the largest fundraising efforts for Special Olympics Connecticut.
