About 50 brave souls of all ages plunged into the cold Atlantic Ocean off Houghs Neck Jan. 7th raising about $1,800 for the Atherton Hough School PTO.
The plungers raced into the 39-degree water at the Public Landing behind the Houghs Neck Maritime for third annual event. Members of the Quincy Police Dive Team were on hand in the event any participant needed assistance.
Here are some photos from the plunge. Story, other photos appear in the Jan. 12th issue of The Quincy Sun. Photos below by Quincy Sun Photographer Robert Bosworth.
