RAYMOND — Students at Raymond High School are fundraising for Special Olympics New Hampshire in several different ways. They have formed a Penguin Plunge Flock called the “Raymond Ramguins High School Plunge Team.” They will be plunging as a team during SONH 12th annual High School Plunge on Sat., February 1 at Hampton Beach.

High School Plungers must each raise a minimum of $200. Participants register online at www.sonh.org and create a fundraising webpage. Most fundraising is done online and via an individual’s social media channels. This year’s theme honors the 50th anniversary of Special Olympics in New Hampshire. The theme is “Nifty Fifties” and everyone is encouraged to go back in time by wearing costumes and accessories related to the 50s. In addition to jumping in the water, the day includes music, a costume contest, food and awards.

The Ramguins will also be presenting a Charity Cornhole Tournament to benefit Special Olympics New Hampshire on Sat., January 18. The tournament will take place in the Raymond High School cafeteria at 45 Harrison Hill Road in Raymond. The event will start with 9:00 a.m. registration and continue until a Cornhole Champion is crowned. The tourney will be random draw with double eliminations. Participation is $20.00 per player all to benefit the Penguin Plunge. The competition will feature many prizes as well as a raffle to benefit SONH.

While the students are the driving force behind these efforts, they are being assisted by Teacher/Adviser Bill Hayes. Questions about the event should be directed to: b.hayes@sau33.com.

The High School Plunge is the first half of “Plunge Weekend” for Special Olympics New Hampshire. Sunday will see the 21st annual Penguin Plunge hitting the beach. The Sunday Penguin Plunge participants must each raise a minimum of $350. Typically, the combined weekend plunges raise over a half-million dollars for those with intellectual disabilities in the Granite State. More information about both events can be found at www.SONH.org.
