14th Annual Penguin Plunge at Hampton Beach

Liven up your Sunday morning on February 3rd with a quick plunge into the frigid waters off Hampton Beach.  This Special Olympics New Hampshire fundraiser attracts hundreds of swimming enthusiasts every year.  Plungers raise funds for Special Olympics NH by soliciting donations of $ 350 from friends, business associates, and family members.

This year Mark Ericson and Karen Kiley from WOKQ will join WMUR’s Chief Meteorologist Mike Haddad to welcome the Penguins.  The Plunge will take place “rain, snow, or shine.”  This year’s theme is “Going to the Chapel.”

Last year, 703 Plungers raised over $ 500,000 for the NH Special Olympics organization.  For details about joining the Plungers, click here.  Check in for participants is 9 to 11AM.   The costume parade starts at 11:30 followed by the Plunge at Noon.  There will be a Post Plunge Lunch at 12:30.
