Penguin Plunge to Benefit Junior Achievement

By  | 

Nearly thirty participants chose to show of their adventurous side and plunge into eight thousand and five hundred gallons of ice cold water.

"It's an exciting event that raises money for Junior Achievement"
Says Event Coordinator Heather Rogers

The plungers were dressed up in costumes of their choice.
Some even perform short skits before plunging into the pool.

"Just to make the event more fun and exciting the plungers will be wearing costumes as they jump in, representing their company or their favorite sports team or just anything crazy"
Says Rogers

Plungers raised their own donations.
The money raised helps to provide funding and awareness for Junior Achievement's business and economics programs for area students in kindergarten through twelfth grade.

"We've got a great turn out this year we've got a few more plungers then we had last year so were hoping to raise more dollars this year"
Says Rogers

The event was held in conjunction with the business association home expo going on all weekend long.

This past school year Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky provided four hundred and seventy two classes in the five county region reaching nearly eleven thousand students.
