Posted by wlpo on January 15, 2014

The third annual Penguin Plunge in Ottawa was a record-breaking success.

The fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation raised over $72,000, far exceeding the goal of $60,000.  The money raised will help Make-A-Wish grant wishes to 12 children.

Cash was raised by individuals and teams who plunged into the chilly Illinois River on January 4th at Heritage Harbor in Ottawa.
