PEEKSKILL, N.Y. - More than 80 polar plungers took to the Hudson River on New Year's Day to raise money for college-bound students facing adversity or who live with alopecia.

This year's Polar Plunge, the fifth annual event, was held at the Peekskill Riverfront Green, planned by the This is Me Foundation and sponsored by The Quiet Man Public House .

In total, the chartable effort raised $16,000, according to organizers.

Locally, a portion of the money will go toward college scholarships for students who have faced adversity or who have helped friends facing adversity, according to organizers, who said that some of the money will go toward national scholarships for those who live with alopecia - an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss.
