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

The 2019 SUPER PLUNGE  will begin at 1:00pm on Saturday, March 23rd and continue into Sunday, March 24th, ending at 12:00pm.  The event is being  held at Salty Brine Beach in Galilee.

The 2018 Super Plunge raised $135,500 and the goal for 2019 is to exceed $150,000!  You can help us reach our goal by making a donation to one of our Super Plungers by clicking on their name, which will take you to their fundraising page.
