Torch Run - Super Plunge

East Greenwich, Rhode IslandUNITED STATES

This year marks the 8th Annual Torch Run Plunge. This event typically hosts between 100-150 participants, many representing local and state police agencies as well as fire departments and public safety. Many athletes take the plunge with fellow friend, family and supporters, all of whom are there to support a great cause. This event features live music, a well-known "plunger costume" competition, and a fantastic after party! The Super Plunge is an effort to increase both awareness and fundraising for the Torch Run Plunge. The Super Plunge is exactly like the Torch Run Plunge, with only one small difference... Instead of plunging a single time, "Super Plungers" must plunge once PER HOUR for a 24 HOUR period. 5 MEN, 24 HOURS, 120 PLUNGES for 1 SUPER CAUSE!
