CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WRIC) — We are learning just how much some area students raised for this year’s Polar Plunge, making them today’s Positively Richmond.

Monacan High School students raised more than $3,200 and Midlothian Middle raised $2,100 to benefit the Special Olympics of Virginia.

Congratulations to everyone who participated!
