Slideshow: 25th annual Polar Bear Plunge

More than 3,500 “polar bears” stood pacing and prancing, chattering in the chill, watching the clock for the countdown to the signal that would send them splashing into the surf at Rehoboth Beach on Sunday. Celebrating its 25th year, the annual Special Olympics Polar Bear Plunge has grown from a group of 78 bears who raised $7000 in 1992 to an annual family favorite for a very good cause that has raised more than $8.3 million in its history.
