Dozens Take Part In Atlantic City's Polar Bear Plunge

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

Dozens of people made a mad dash into the frigid ocean in Atlantic City on Tuesday.

The 22nd Annual Polar Bear Plunge was held on New Year's Day to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America.

People wearing only their bathing suits took a quick dip into the Atlantic and then ran back to the beach to warm up.

Some people even came all the way from North Carolina to take part in the event.

"It was amazing. It was great. But I don't know if I could do it again. It was so cold!" said Erin Baker, of Sanford, N.C.

The plunge raises money for programs to treat MS patients.
