A crowd gathered at North Beach this morning to take a leap into the new year.

About 200 people took part in today’s Polar Bear Plunge.

It was a chilly way to start the new year, but it’s for a good cause.

The idea is to educate the public about ALS and to raise money for research.

And, they got a chance to burn a few calories from their New Year’s Eve celebrations to boot.
