Then yesterday, fundraisers taking part in a sponsored boot camp at Marske cooled off after their efforts with a dip in the sea.
Both events were held to raise money for cancer charities.
The Pink Dip at Redcar was founded in 2005 by breast cancer survivor Sharyn Clarkson.
Since then, it has raised nearly £20,000.
Last year, about £3,000 was raised by the hardy dippers. And with the current running total since 2005 hovering around £19,000, the £20,000 barrier is expected to be smashed.
