SEASIDE HEIGHTS — Nearly 7,000 people jumped into 42-degree ocean water on Saturday to raise more than $1.8 million for the Special Olympics of New Jersey.

We want to see your photos from the plunge! Send them to use via the New Jersey 101.5 app for Android or iOS. We’ll donate $100 to Special Olympics of New Jersey in honor of our favorite photographer!

The Seaside Heights event is one of three Polar Bear Plunges held each year for Special Olympics New Jersey — though the biggest by far. The Polar Bear Plunge at Wildwood raised $400,000 this past January, and the Thanks4Giving Plunge in Asbury Park raised nearly $25,000 in November.

For the 22nd year, New Jersey 101.5’s emceed the Plunge and partnered with the Law Enforcement Torch Run. Bog Joe Henry broadcast live from the Spicy Cantina.

Special Olympics of New Jersey serves more than 25,000 athletes with year-round sports training and athletic competitions.

You can still donate to the cause at their website.
