Penguin Plunge 2023

Take the Plunge! Register now! The Penguin Plunge website is open for registration and sponsors.

We are excited to announce that First Rung is one of two local charities selected to benefit from the 2023 Penguin Plunge. Now in its 20th year, the Penguin Plunge is a bucket list experience.

Join us on January 1st, 2023 at the Atlantic Beach Circle for an exhilarating start to the new year. If you’re not ready to get wet, register as a “towel holder” and support the braver bathers. Proceeds from the plunge will fund at least one new First Rung business in Carteret County in 2023.
