15th Annual Penguin Plunge at Hampton Beach

Liven up your Sunday morning on February 2nd with a quick plunge into the cool 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 from friends, business associates, and family members. Each participant pledges to raise $ 350 to help support this important cause.

Many plungers come back year after year. The plunge will take place “rain, snow, or shine.” This year’s theme is Zombies. For details about joining the penguins, click here. Check in for participants is 9 to 11AM.

If you prefer to stay high and dry, drop by to cheer the plungers on! This year Mark Ericson and Karen Kiley from WOKQ will join WMUR’s Chief Meteorologist Mike Haddad to welcome the penguins. There will be great activities for both wet and dry participants: a costume parade at 11:30,  a lunch and post-plunge celebration at 12:30, and the bestowing of special awards at 1:30.
