Superintendent Steve Hart and President Taylor Woodward joined the Frozen Sections team on Sunday, February 12th, taking the Penguin Plunge straight into the frigid 41-degree Atlantic Ocean in support of the Special Olympics New Hampshire.
For several years, DEW has been a proud supporter of the Special Olympics and Special Olympian Becky May, an athlete with over four decades of experience in various disciplines. Last year, Becky was chosen to represent the Granite State and play on the first-ever all-women 3v3 basketball team for the 2022 USA Games. Becky and her team took home the bronze medal!
This year 558 volunteers helped raise more than $680,000 for the New Hampshire Special Olympics! The Frozen Sections were among one of the top teams statewide, having raised $31,600. Becky May took her 16th plunge Sunday and was a top fundraiser again this year, bringing in over $11,000!
DEW is pleased to continue our support of the Special Olympics in its mission. Congratulations, Becky, and to all who participated in this year’s Penguin Plunge!
