February 3rd, 2021 by WCBC Radio

In tribute to the late Dr. Sean McCagh, Cumberland’s City Hall is currently being illuminated with green lights. Dr McCagh, a  Cumberland dermatologist who founded the Hooley Plunge, died Sunday from complications related to COVID-19. He was 60. The Hooley Plunge, which features hundreds of people dunking themselves in Lake Habeeb at Rocky Gap State Park, funds programs ranging from Special Olympics to some offerings that support special needs students in county public schools. The event has raised more than $1.4 million in 16 years. Mayor Ray Morriss tells WCBC News that Dr McCagh’s community commitment and dedication will long  as a role model for Cumberland residents..
