30th annual Polar Plunge held

About 900 people went into 67-degree ocean water the morning of Jan. 1 as part of the 30th annual Polar Plunge in Jacksonville Beach.
The water was warmer than usual, which may have contributed to the largest crowd ever for the annual event. Sponsored by WaveMasters, the Polar Plunge is a fund raiser for local charities and T-shirts are sold at the event.
