Daring enough to brave the cold? Take a plunge in the Atlantic Ocean for a good cause. The annual Penguin Plunge begins at 1pm on Monday, Jan. 1 at the Atlantic Beach Circle. Water temperature is generally in the 50s – a perfect way to get the blood flowing for the year ahead.

This year, funds raised will be donated to Austin Veterinary Outreach & Rescue. Whether part of the rookery or as a spectator, drop by the Circle and kick off the new year in style. For more information, visit www.penguin-plunge.org.
