A big shout out to the hundreds of amazing people who participated in the Polar Plunge on Saturday. January 23, 2016.
Whether you plunged, donated or cheered us on, thank you! Just shy of $71,500 with a $10,000 surge over the weekend! 
Thoughts from a Plunger
Well the Polar Plunge happened yesterday. It was surreal, really. Its one thing to go in the water - but the 25° temp and the 40 mph winds had whipped up the surf, which just happened to be at an astronomically high level. Even if any of us had still thought we could stay in for very long, the riptides put an end to that.
Still - load and loads of fun. I don't know if it was the weather or if the wind really saps the body heat that much more, but this is my 5th plunge, and I don't remember any of the others being so brutally cold as we got out of the water and headed back to change. Even the sand was more ice than sand.
Christina and I joined the Interactors at Village Pancake House to warm up. Best Hot Chocolate I've ever had!
