Residents take icy plunge in Asbury Park to help fight lupus

The Lupus Research Alliance held its first "Plunge to Freeze Out Lupus" in Asbury Park on Saturday.



Participants took a quick dip in the ocean before enjoying some snacks to warm up.



Organizers say entering the icy water gives people a feel for what lupus patients deal with as far as joint pain and exhaustion.



All donations from the event will go toward finding a cure for the disease.
