Polar Plunge

A few weeks ago in Duluth, my daughter did a Polar Plunge with some sorority sisters to raise money for Special Olympics.     When she told me she was doing this,  I had no idea it was such a big deal.


There were many interesting people.   Notice the spectator with the fur hat…  He was nothing compared to the plungers.


This man walked around dancing and yelling that it was his seventh year in a row to do the plunge.  Woo Hoo!

There were also some rescuers in the water ready to save the plungers.    No one needed saving.    Sometimes there is ice on the water but there was not this afternoon.  There was ice on the water the next morning.


There were 1,400 plungers. 


A lot of money was raised this day.   Great job polar plungers!
