If you’re anything like us, you may be asking yourself, “Where has 2017 gone?” With the New Year right around the corner, we start to think of our New Year’s resolutions and in what ways we can better ourselves and impact people around us. And what better way to start the New Year than at the 24th Annual AGH Penguin Swim fundraiser!

Get ready to dunk your penguin tail in the icy-cold Atlantic Ocean for a good cause! On Monday, January 1, 2018, join us at the Princess Royale Hotel, Oceanfront 91st Street in Ocean City, MD. This year, the event day registration will begin at 10:00 a.m., ending promptly at 12:30 p.m., with the main event at 1:00p.m on the beach. For the time in between, the whole family can enjoy: carnival games, face painting, mermaids and more!

There will be special recognition awards, prizes awarded to the best costumes and trophies for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for whoever raises the most money in all divisions! All Penguins will receive an official 2018 AGH Penguin Swim short-sleeve t-shirt for their $25 registration fee. Additional incentive prizes can be earned based on individual fundraising efforts!

Individual and team participants can register now to start collecting donations. For more information, please visit www.aghpenguinswim.org or text PENGUIN to 51555.
