    When I looked at it -- your page seemed out of date, reporting last years numbers and seeming to be over. Maybe an update?

    The Polar Plunge is a charity event to raise money for the Special Olympics of VA, where a bunch of people run into the freezing cold Atlantic Ocean the first Saturday of February for a good cause. There are groups that dress up (including my group), a party, a bunch of other fun things.

    Here's my fundraising page:
