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 9 years ago, it’s become one of our most unique and talked about fundraising events.

Please note that the 2023 Super Plunge Team Members (see below)  have already been identified and are the only ones that can participate in the Super Plunge.  You can help us reach our goal by supporting one of our Super Plungers by clicking on their name, which will take you to their fundraising page.

The fundraising goal for 2023 is to raise $80,000!
