ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Annapolis is getting ready to host the 18th annual Polar Bear Plunge at Sandy Point State Park.

The event scheduled for Saturday was originally set for Jan. 25, but was postponed because of below-freezing temperatures and high winds.

Some 5,000 people are expected to take a dip in the Chesapeake Bay to raise money for Special Olympics Maryland. The event began in 1997 and has raised millions of dollars for Special Olympics Maryland.
