Long Beach polar plunge draws thousands on a super Sunday

The Long Beach Polar Bear Club hosted its Super Bowl Splash on a warmer-than-normal Sunday, Feb. 4, 2018, to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The event honored Paulie Bradley, a Long Beach boy who dreamed of becoming a lifeguard, but died in 1997 at 4 years old. Participants were expected to raise $500,000 this year, bringing the event's lifetime fundraising total to more than $6 million, according to an organizer. (Credit: Jessica Rotkiewicz)
