About the Event
The Special Olympics Vermont Penguin Plunge is a unique winter event where participants raise funds to take a dip in Vermont's icy lakes.
Now in its 29th year, the Special Olympics Vermont Penguin Plunge event series supports a movement that works year-round to foster inclusion and acceptance of people with intellectual disabilities (ID) by using the power of sport to showcase their gifts and abilities. Today, Special Olympics Vermont serves 2,000 athletes (people with ID) and 1,400 Unified partners (people without ID who train and compete with Special Olympics athletes), offering thirteen Olympic-style sports and nine state-wide competitions each year. Each year, the SOVT Penguin Plunge raises nearly 40% of our operating budget.
Thank you to our loyal event sponsors, donors, and most importantly, our Plungers for supporting the Special Olympics movement and building inclusive communities.
