PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- Talk about a brisk awakening to the New Year. The Third Annual Polar Plunge to benefit This is Me Foundation , an organization helping fund college scholarships for local students who have faced adversity or helped a friend through adversity, will take place Jan. 1 at 1 p.m. at the Peekskill Riverfront Green.

Sponsored by The Quiet Man Public House , all proceeds also benefit students who have alopecia, an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss.

Applications are being accepted until midnigh tonight for plungers. Go to polarplunge@thisismefoundation.com to register.

The event is free and open to the public to cheer on the brave plungers, though any donations are greatly appreciated.
