Let’s get naked and help people

More than 2,500 women have stripped naked on a beach in the Republic of Ireland to break the world record for the largest skinny dip. Magheramore Beach, just south of Wicklow Town, was the venue for the women-only event on Saturday morning. The 2,505 naked women spent at least five minutes in the chilly waters of secluded Magheramore beach, County Wicklow, roughly 60 kilometers south of Dublin, to set the new Guinness World Record.

Women did it for the Strip and Dip charity swim organized by Aoibheann’s Pink Tie.

The charity was set up in 2010 after Irishman Jimmy Norman’s 8-year-old daughter Aoibheann died from cancer, prompting the men at her funeral to wear pink ties because that was the girl’s favorite color.

Saturday’s skinny dip smashed the three-year-old record of 786 people taking the plunge in Perth, Western Australia, at an event to promote positive body images. Open to women only, participants were made up of cancer patients, survivors and those who had been otherwise affected by cancer.

The organizer of Saturday’s event, Dee Featherstone from Dublin, launched the first “Strip and Dip” fundraising skinny dip in 2013. It has since become an annual event, raising 153,000 euros ($180,000) for children’s cancer charities, not including this year’s record-breaking swim.
