Hundreds of participants hit the water during the recent White Bear Lake Polar Plunge benefit event for Special Olympics Minnesota. It was the 21st consecutive year for the plunge on White Bear Lake and kicks off a season of benefit plunges around the state, ending with a May plunge in Roseau, near the border with Canada. 694 plungers raised $187, 417, surpassing the original goal of $125,000. According to the website, the White Bear Lake Plunge has raised over $3,377,389 in its 20-year history. — Photos by Paul Dols | Press Publications
