Scotland, MD— “We are all out here freezing for a reason,” said St. Mary’s County Sheriff Tim Cameron (R).

This past weekend the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office held their annual St. Mary’s Splash at Point Lookout State Park in Scotland, MD. The group was able to raise nearly $30,000 on their official website. However, the total amount of donations is unknown due to the donations received on site.

“Turn out was great over 100 people this year, we hope for even more people next year when we hold this event again,” said Lt. Brian Hartz of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office.

Top individual fundraisers listed from first to fifth would include Robert Crell, Brian Hartz, Scott Mewhinney, Tanya Gould-Weedon, and Jonas Williams. Top team ranks from first to fifth would include Spot the Cow, St. Mary’s County Detention Center, Chilly Nipples, Maryland Park Service and Blackjacks.

“The air temperature for the splash was 40 degrees Fahrenheit, with a water temperature of 43 degrees Fahrenheit,” said Hartz.

All the donations that were raised at this event support the Special Olympics Maryland group.

“This is an incredible venue and a wonderful group of people supporting a great event,” said Cameron.
