Long Beach Polar Bear Club partners with Make-A-Wish Foundation

Since 2000, the Long Beach Polar Bear Club has partnered with Make-A-Wish Foundation, raising about $6 million and granting hundreds of wishes. On Saturday, Dec. 30, 2017, organizers of the event -- where  thousands of people strip down to swimsuits and race into the ocean on Super Bowl Sunday --  talked about their efforts and how humbled they are to be able to do so much good and to give so much back.
