The 2019 start to the plunge season brought in over $300,000 to support athletes across the state. Many athletes took part in the plunge, like those on one of the highest fundraising teams: AlohAvengers. This year’s theme for the team was yellow, a bright pop of color visible from the huge shores of Wildwood.
Watch the madness as it happened!
