Despite the 2021 Maryland State Police Polar Bear Plunge going virtual, plungers have stepped up to the challenge and raised money for the 8,716 athletes of Special Olympics Maryland. This year, 4,160 virtual plungers registered and 350 submitted virtual plunge videos. Last year 11,000 people plunged, raising $3.5 million. But, those 4,000 plungers this year raised $1,768,563.54, close to their goal of $2 million.
