The water off Monmouth County beaches is hovering around 35°, so jumping in seems downright crazy...unless you're doing it for a good cause.

The Valentine Plunge returns to Manasquan this year, encouraging everyone to 'jump in and feel the love.'

Participants, called Plungers, raise money for people fighting amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

In exchange, they will jump into the icy waters of the Atlantic just after noon this Saturday.

I'm honored to be hosting the event, along with the Point Crew, in association with two great organizations: Joan Dancy and PALS and staytough.fighthard.

You can still register to take the plunge or make a donation by clicking HERE.

And I know what you're I going in the water?

I haven't decided yet, but I generally don't like going in the ocean til it hits 75°+, so what does that tell you??
