During the frigid winter months, many people often dream about the time when they can go to the lake and plunge into the water. Few people elect to take that leap while there is still ice on the lake. However, when there is an opportunity to give back to an organization such as Special Olympics, most will brave the elements of winter to help out.

This past Saturday, 555 supporters lined the bank of Lake Decatur to raise money for the Special Olympics by taking the Polar Plunge. The Polar Plunge has been an annual event in Decatur for the past 12 years. Participants are invited to plunge into Lake Decatur by simply raising at least $75 in donations that will benefit the area Special Olympics. Login or Subscribe to read the rest of this story.
