The SUPER PLUNGE is an effort to increase both awareness and fundraising for the Special Olympics Rhode Island. It’s a new spin on a traditional plunge, where a team of individuals plunge into near freezing water once EVERY HOUR for a 24 hour period. 24 hours, 24 plunges, full submersion, no excuses, no backing out! Since this event started 8 years ago, it’s become one of our most unique and talked about fundraising events.
The 2020 SUPER PLUNGE will begin at 1:00pm on Saturday, March 21st and continue into Sunday, March 22nd, ending at 12:00pm. The event is being held at Salty Brine Beach in Galilee.
