MAKE A SPLASH
FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS VERMONT
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.
Raise the minimum $250 to support the athletes of Special Olympics Vermont. Go above and beyond to make a greater impact and earn awesome incentives!
Bravely jump into the icy waters of Lake Champlain with the community cheering you on!
Special Olympics Vermont is grateful to all of the Plungers and donors who make the Penguin Plunge event such a success. Funds raised through this event impact athletes with intellectual disabilities and their families across the state and provide life-changing experiences. We are pleased to acknowledge our Plungers with cool items from Vermont businesses for their fundraising efforts. All plungers who raise the minimum $250 will receive a hat and a towel, raise more to make a greater impact and earn more prizes!
Please note that fundraising incentive prizes are cumulative. The more you raise, the more you take home!
