Rugby club takes a plunge to raise funds for Special Olympics

East Lyme — Members of the New London County Rugby Club participated in the virtual Penguin Plunge for Special Olympics on Saturday at the McCook Point Park beach in Niantic.

The club has been participating in the annual event for 14 years and Saturday was the first time the members had come together in a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The fundraiser this year was virtual due to the pandemic and people were encouraged to find a fun way to do it at any time, anywhere.

Participants in Niantic were treated to a grilled snack afterward.
