900+ Plunge Into Md. Lake’s Waters For Charity

CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — More than 900 people plunged into the waters of Maryland’s Lake Habeeb at Rocky Gap State Park, all in the name of charity.

The Cumberland Times-News reports Saturday’s so-called “Hooley Plunge” raised more than $100,000 for the Special Olympics of Allegany County. This was the ninth year of the plunge.

Participants braved temperatures of 32 degrees and a wind of seven miles per hour in order to take the plunge.
