WAKEFIELD - Forty-one people who jumped into frigid Sunday Lake at Wakefield on March 24 helped raised more than $11,000 for Regional Hospice.

The 12th annual Polar Plunge included donations from more than 100 businesses and there were more than 500 door and raffle prizes given out at the Wakefield VFW, according to organizers John and Mary Oberto. She is also a volunteer coordinator for Regional Hospice Services, Inc.

Every year, jumpers plunge into the freezing waters near shore to earn money through pledges for hospice services. The ice is cut out of the lake to provide a jumping pool.
