Willimantic, Conn. - On Dec. 7 at the edge of Patriots Park on Coventry Lake, Eastern Connecticut State University students will be taking the plunge into chilly waters to raise money for the Special Olympics. Registration for the event starts at 10 a.m. and the plunge starts at noon. Transportation will be provided to students who are participating in the fundraiser. The registration fee for each plunger is $100.
Students or "penguins" can solicit donations from family, friends and local businesses in order to take the plunge.
