As press time, the dollars were still being counted (and accepted) for the annual Maryland Special Olympics Polar Bear Plunge. More than $2 million has been raised so far and organizers are still counting the money raised during the event and turned in by plungers. More than 2,000 people participated and jumped in the chilly Chesapeake for a good cause. It was one of the warmer plunges in recent memory, 2016 and 2015 saw temperatures in the low 30s, and the year prior was canceled due to hig winds and excessive cold that had the Bay looking more like a giant slurpee than anything else.
This year…sunny skies, moderate temperatures and a good time had by all.
