As far as fundraisers go it's got to be one of the craziests and one of the coldest.
148 people took part in the 5th annual Lake Lure New Year's Day Polar Plunge Tuesday. People come from as far away as Scotland, Central America and Ohio take part in the event. At 40 degrees with a drizzling rain, they didn't leave disappointed.
The Polar Plunge was a chance to raise money for the Hickory Nut Gorge volunteer fire departments and make some cool memories.
