Freezin’ for a Reason Gets a New Meaning

On February 18, community members around the Treasure Valley gathered to jump into freezing cold water to raise funds for Special Olympics Idaho in the annual Penguin Plunge event. More than 100 “plungers” jumped into a located in the Sportsman’s Warehouse parking lot in Meridian, ID. This is an event we look forward to all year and we are so grateful to all the plungers, volunteers, sponsors and donors! Below are some of my favorite photos from the Plunge, more can be found on our Flickr account. Enjoy!Image


“Power Plungers” jumped into the water every hour, on the hour, for 30 hours!  A HUGE thanks to Terisa Howell, Ada County Sheriffs Office, Donny Ankenmand, Walmart, Cory Mikaels, radio personality at KQFC, Lance Sellers Boise Fire Department and Mike Myers, Meridian Fire Department!
