Every year around this time, the Maryland State Police do a fundraiser for the Special Olympics Maryland called the Polar Bear Plunge. For a $50 donation you get to jump in freezing cold water. It's nonsensical when you think about it, but it's for a good cause. All procedes go to the Special Olympics Maryland; a non-profit sports training and competition league for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, This year saw the most amount of funds ever raised - a whopping $2.8 million. It was a balmy 45F with a piping hot water temperature of just over freezing (roughly 37F was what I heard).
