Anne Arundel County Public School students will have their own day to plunge in this year's Maryland State Police Polar Bear Plunge.
All other participating schools in Maryland will plunge on Jan. 25 but, due to exams, Anne Arundel County students' day in the water was rescheduled—they will plunge on Feb. 1 at 9:30 a.m.
Students from Arundel High and South River High have historically been among the top fundraisers for the event, which directs proceeds to Special Olympics Maryland.
The annual Plungefest, hosted by the Maryland State Police, helps to raise money for Thousands of plungers, sponsored by friends, family and neighbors, toss themselves into frigid, Chesapeake Bay water.
This year's main event, which is open to the public, is set for Jan. 26 at Sandy Point State Park.
Local schools had a big success last year. Students garnered nearly $150,000 in donations to Special Olympics Maryland. Check out a video of last year's event here.
