People can take a plunge into ice-cold water to fundraise at the upcoming 2020 Virginia Polar Dip.
The charity event is set to take place Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Lake Anne from 2-5 p.m. People will be able to take turns jumping into the lake.
Each participant is expected to help raise money that will send kids and their families to Camp Sunshine, which serves kids with life-threatening illnesses. The camp is located in Maine.
This year, event organizers hope to raise $100,000, which would sponsor 40 families in the D.C.-area, according to the event page.
Each participant that raises more than $100 will receive a t-shirt.
For people who don’t want to fully jump into cold water, the “Chicken Dip” will let people only dip their feet in, according to the event page.
