Take the ‘Plunge’ for Special Olympics

Hundreds of people will be headed to Hampton Beach in February to plunge into the Atlantic Ocean.

Individuals will be participating in the Sixth Annual High School Plunge on Saturday, Feb. 1, and the 15th Annual Penguin Plunge on Sunday, Feb. 2, to benefit Special Olympics New Hampshire.

Participants solicit support from family, friends, business associates and others to raise a minimum of $350 for the Penguin Plunge and $175 for the High School Plunge.

Many of the individuals participating in one of the two plunges will be wearing costumes to coincide with the days’ theme, “School Spirit” for the High School Plunge and “Zombies” for the Penguin Plunge. In addition to jumping in the water, the day includes live music, food, awards and fun.

For those not interested in plunging, they can register as a “Pampered Penguin.” Pampered Penguins who raise the minimum fundraising goal expected receive the same benefits as a Plunger, without having to get wet.

For more information or to register for one of the two plunges, visit or call 624-1250.
