RAYSTOWN LAKE, Pa. (WTAJ) — On a day when most people wouldn’t even dare to go outside without their coat, gloves, hat and auto-starting their car, many traveled to Raystown Lake to plunge right into the frigid water.

Among the teams that raised money and jumped in, were members of the Altoona Police Department.

Along with teams coming from Sheetz, local banks, various businesses, APD was able to raise over $7,500! That was just on the official team page!
