BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The 28th annual Penguin Plunge is now remote due to subzero temperatures expected this weekend. Special Olympics Vermont says with the negative-20-degree wind chills, it’s deemed unsafe to be outside, let alone jump into the lake.
Some suggestions they have for remote options are to make a snow angel in summer attire, wear summer attire and have a snowball fight or water balloon fight, or pick a few teammates and dump a bucket of ice-cold water on each other.
Plungers have until Feb. 20 to get creative and send in their submissions. For more information, click here.
