'Polar Plunge' in Manasquan raises money to fight ALS
The Polar Plunge to benefit those living with ALS kicked off at noon Saturday in Manasquan.
A total of 700 people embraced cold winter temperatures and ran into the Atlantic Ocean, which was about 42 degrees.
"It's cold every year, but it doesn't matter," said one participant. "We do it because we are passionate about finding a cure...It's about helping people living with the disease."
Saturday marked the 11th polar plunge in Manasquan. Organizers say they raised about $320,000 that will go to those with ALS.
