Special Olympics Connecticut presents the Penguin Plunge during February and March at venues across the state. This cool annual event – a wintertime tradition for many – encourages communities to come together to jump into an icy cold lake or ocean to support Special Olympics athletes. Penguin Plunge events feature a fun and festive atmosphere. In addition to the excitement of the plunge, there’s music, refreshments, awards and parades of plungers in costume to enjoy.

All are invited to participate, including individuals and families, and teams representing schools, businesses, organizations and clubs. Preregistration is strongly encouraged and may be done at www.soct.org. Those who sign up, can fundraise online to earn great incentive prizes and awards.
