Last year, he participated in his First Super Plunge to benefit the CT Special Olympics and with the help of family and friends, he was able to exceed his goal of raising $2,400 and brought in $2,800.
Next month, on Saturday, March 28th through Sunday, March 29th, Officer Peterson will be joining the Super Plungers for another 24 hours of fun. His fundraising goal, once again, is $2,400, though he is hoping to exceed last year’s $2,800. But he needs your help.
The SUPER PLUNGE is a Penguin Plunge Event to Benefit Special Olympics Connecticut and is an effort to increase both awareness and fundraising for the Torch Run Plunge.
The SUPER PLUNGE is exactly like your typical Penguin Plunge, with only one small difference. Instead of plunging into the near-freezing water a single time, “SUPER PLUNGERS” must plunge once per hour for a 24-hour period.
Peterson said the water feels like a million needles, and as the day goes on the pain increases, yet it’s worth it for the cause.
