PORTLAND, Maine — Screams, whoops and primal hollers rang out over Portland Harbor on Wednesday as unseasonably-dressed swimmers hoofed it into the sea to raise money for the Natural Resources Council of Maine.
The seventh annual Dip and Dash drew nearly 200 participants. Runners capped a 5k road race from Back Cove with the plunge at the East End Beach at noon, raising about $18,000 in the process.
The money will help the Natural Resources Council of Maine address climate change issues.
