Photos: Ninth Annual Freezin’ For a Reason

Was that you in the superhero costume, flinging yourself into Lake Anne on Saturday for a good cause?

About 200 brave participants took part in the ninth annual Freezin’ for a Reason Virginia Polar Dip.

The event raised nearly $100,000 for Camp Sunshine, a summer camp in Maine for children with life-threatening illnesses. The money raised from this year’s jump will enable 50 families from the Mid-Atlantic region to take part in Camp Sunshine.

The event was founded by the Toth family of Oakton, whose daughter suffered from childhood cancer and was enriched by her Camp Sunshine experience.

There are several Polar Dips held annually for the cause nationwide.
