As soon as we hit the boardwalk, I felt the energy. The music was cranked and the costumes were crazy fun! We saw everyone from Cupid to Polar Bears to Santa! But, the best part was the amount of $$$ raised for The Special Olympics! Over 1.1 million, which was 100k over what we raised last year!!! WOOOHOOO!!!
The Virginia Beach Polar Plunge challenges people take a dip in the cold ocean to raise money for the Special Olympics. Today, the water temps were about 46 degrees and the air temp was about 60. Not too bad for February, but it was a little chilly when the sun decided to disappear!
What a fun family event! They had tons of blow up bounce houses, piles of sand, sand sculptures and ice sculptures, plus food & drinks.
We took tons of pictures! Of course, I should have plunged! I got really wet just trying to get the shots!
