BALTIMORE — For the first time in its 25-year history, the Maryland State Police Polar Bear Plunge will be held virtually.

Organizers tried for months to schedule a live event in January at its traditional host site, Sandy Point State Park.

But a continued spike in COVID-19 cases has thwarted that effort.

So here's how it'll work this time around.

Anytime or anywhere from December 8 through January 31, you can take the virtual plunge.

As always the event will benefit the Special Olympics of Maryland.

Participating plungers are urged to submit a video, for a chance to be named Plunger of the Week and ultimately Plunger of the Year.

Winners of course will take home various prizes.
