More than 1,300 participants walked into the icy Susquehanna River on Feb. 4 to raise money for Special Olympics York County. While the final figure isn't available, the current net amount is more than $90,000. Lake Clarke River Rescue formed a human corral for the plungers. The United States Marines Corps recruits marched in cadence into the water. They have been the first into the water every year. Team QVC Qubes was the winner of the Golden Plunger Award for the largest team. Athlete Justin McWilliams spoke about what Special Olympics means to him and athlete Tim Moran gave a moving rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner."
