Penguin Plunge returning to the shores of Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on January 7, 2016

If you’re going to jump into the river this time of the year, may as well do it for a worthy cause.

The fifth annual “Penguin Plunge” is Saturday at Heritage Harbor Marina in Ottawa. Each “plunger” is asked to raise at least a hundred dollars to take the plunge into the Illinois River. All proceeds benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The goal is to raise around 100 thousand dollars. Over $96,000 was raised at last year’s plunge.

You can take the plunge as a team or individually. Teams should have at least five members. Online registration is only available until noon tomorrow.
