So, there I was watching all these people in funny outfits come running out of a big tent in groups and dash down the ramp and splash into the water or Lake Champlain - on a cold winter day. Whew, I couldn't do it, but I'm glad they could because they raised a lot of money for the Special Olympics. Fundraising is a creative art! It was a thrilling, if not chilling, experience for those who participated and entertaining for us spectators.
I was hesitant to bring my good equipment to video the event for a number of reasons such as the warnings about not bringing it into cold places and also just wanting to enjoy the event. But, I couldn't help myself. I whipped out my iPhone-4S and got a few fun clips. You can see what I put together below. And if you want to donate and get more info about the event and/or the Special Olympics, got to this website: http://penguinplunge.org/.
