For Charity: Annual Polar Plunge

This past Saturday, folks leapt into Goose Lake to raise money for the Special Olympics. Once again, everyone had a good time, and $350,000 was raised.

Photos can be found here, and here are a few samples to whet your appetite:

And they're off ... er, in!

Just in case you wondered whether it was cold

Post-plunge: "Where's the hot tub?"

See what you're missing? :)

Uh, I'll pass! =) Brrr!

Rev. Paul said...

Oh come on, Kelly: where's your spirit of adventure?

Steve said...

Our spirits of adventure are sitting nicely at room temperature! The seals and polar bears can have the cold water all to themselves.

No way!!!!!!!

Took me a minute to figure out that that's body paint and not clothing !!

Rev. Paul said...

Steve - I hear you. Took me a long time to work up the courage to do that, years ago ... and once was enough.

Chickenmom - LOL!

Cathy - me, too. It's easier to see that in the video than in the still photo, though.
