Maryland Penguin Swim A Huge Success

The Penguin Post is happy to report that hundreds of people plunged into the frigid waters that were more suited for penguins than humans for a good cause in Ocean City on New Year’s Day for the 16th Annual Penguin Swim.
Participants started on the beach off of 91st Street and ran into the ocean for a quick dip. Some participants who traveled a distance to get here, said it was all worth it.
“We believe it’s important because we vacation here in Ocean City and you never know when you’ll need the hospital. A few years ago my dad fell, her grandfather, and he needed the services of Atlantic General,” said Theresa Kaufhold of Lancaster, Pa.
All the proceeds from the event go to the Atlantic General Hospital Foundation.
