BALTIMORE COUNTY - Over the weekend thousands of people took a frigid dip for a great cause.
More than 8,000 people turned out for the rescheduled 18th annual Polar Bear Plunge.
Now we've learned the event raised $2.25 million for Special Olympics Maryland.
The Plunge was postponed due to the arctic blast that hit us in January, dropping temperatures down into the teens and single-digits.
Organizers say they are extremely thankful to all the people who rearranged their schedules and came out to help a great cause.
Over the past 18 years the Polar Bear Plunge has raised more than $25 million for Special Olympics Maryland.
