PLUNGE TO RAISE FUNDS: With the air temperature of 37 degrees and a water temperature at approximately 42 degrees, Robin Schutt of Cranston joined in with hundreds of brave individuals at this year’s Penguin Plunge, held every New Year’s Day, to benefit Special Olympics Rhode Island. Schutt exceeded her fundraising goal, collecting $5,500 personally and together with her Excelsior partner, Mike Horan, raised more than $11,000. Both Schutt and Horan, in their roles as Excelsior, led the plunge into the cold water. Schutt is pictured here as she comes out of the water after her Penguin Plunge.

Robin Schutt of Cranston led the Penguin Plunge on New Year’s Day, wearing the signature red bow tie worn only by Excelsiors, who are top event fundraisers. Schutt is already planning a return dive into the cold ocean for next New Year’s Day to continue to raise funds for Special Olympics Rhode Island.
