Penn State Altoona's Alumni Society held its fifth annual Winter Plunge event Saturday, Jan. 28 at Canoe Creek State Park. Seventy-four Penn State students, staff, and community members ran, jumped, dove, flipped, and belly-flopped into the 37-degree-water to support the Alumni Society's scholarship program and Penn State Altoona Benefiting THON.
To date, Winter Plunge 2017 gross proceeds from donations and sponsorships total $38,771.30. Net proceeds will be divided equally between the two causes.
If you would like to make a gift to support the Winter Plunge, you can send checks, payable to Penn State Altoona Alumni Society, to Penn State Altoona Office of Development and Alumni Relations, Kazmaier Family Building, 1419 Twelfth Avenue, Altoona, PA, 16601.
