Residents start new year with frigid dip in Mattapoisett Harbor

Jan 1, 2018

Despite snow in the sand, ice in the water and temperatures in the single digits, the annual Freezin' for a Reason polar plunge still saw people running into the ocean for charity.

The polar plunge was hosted by the Huggins family to raise money for the hidden costs cancer patients and their families face, such as childcare, gas, parking and food.

In addition to the icy dip, prayer ties were also handed out for people to make a wish for the new year.
