You have the opportunity to support our Special
Olympians by participating in the Penguin Plunge
For the seventh year, teams and Law Enforcement
Officers will be “Taking the Plunge” by jumping
into Kootenai River to raise funds for Idaho
Special Olympics. It is fun and exciting with
many participants in costume; imagine Halloween
goes swimming with ices cubes.
Plungers and plunge teams collect pledges that
help to raise money and awareness for Special
Olympics, and without those funds Idaho Olympic
Athletes would not have the opportunity for
their special day.
All donations raised go to benefit Idaho Special
The Plunge is on March 11th at the Search and
Rescue/Waterways Building with registration at
11:00 am and the plunge starting at noon.
Minimum age for the plunge is 14 years of age.
All spectators are welcome!!!!
Judging for best costume, most team spirit, most
donations, along with a special spectator’s
choice award will be done with prizes in each
Photos of the Plunge will be available for
viewing on a Flicker site for the world to
Put your plunge team together, or jump alone.
Get your pledges from those who won’t plunge and
come join the fun and frolic. Warm food and
beverage will be available after those chilling
moments in the Kootenai River.
Please come join us and enjoy a day of Beach Boy
music, interviews, costumes, laughter, and of
course the jumpers. It can be very entertaining!
