Penguin Plunge '010

The sun was out, but it was not warm.
The sun was out, but it was not warm.

The thermometer read a meager 9 degrees, as hundreds of determined souls braved the Vermont winter and made their plunge into Lake Champlain.

Only the brave can survive a Vermont Penguin Plunge.

A large audience dressed for a day on the slopes, waited for their friend or family member with cameras and recorders in tow. 

Some of the Penguins dressed in colorful, animated outfits, while others wore surprisingly little. All the Penguins were sponsored to plunge, and the proceeds benefited the Special Olympics

If dressed appropriately, it was a delightful event for the whole family.
