Less than 24 hours to go!

Less than 24 hours to go until the MD State Police Polar Bear Plunge 2011!!

 

The Polar Bear Plunge is a great event held every year at Sandy Point State Park by the MD State Police to benefit the MD Special Olympics.  Brave souls commit to plunging into the icy waters of the Chesapeake Bay in return for donations that help the Special Olympics fund programs where children and adult athletes with intellectual disabilities can train and compete year round.  

The is the 15th year for the event and Al Chef's fourth.  In the past, he has raised almost four thousand dollars toward this worthy cause and his goal for this year alone is $2,000.

There is still time to donate by going to AlChef's Polar Bear Plunge page.  Every little bit counts!

wow I thought 50 degree water was cold!  As  a 23 year veteran surfer the older we get the harder it is to take the cold.

 

Good Post

Mike- Last year it snowed on top of it!  The weather is forecast to be a toasty 30 degrees with only a CHANCE of snow tomorrow, a big improvement from last year... and the only people who wear wet suits are the rescue staff!

 

Tammy- I think you have to be a bit of both!  I am more than happy to donate of my time and money.. or of anything really as long as I don't have to get in that water!  He swears he's going to get me to do it with him one year.   I feel my talents are better spent promoting then shivering in an ambulance with hypothermia :)

That must be one of the latest polar bear plunges. I thought they were always on New Year’s Day.
