Polar Plunge benefits Special Olympics

By  | 

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - More than 250 people decided to take the 'Polar Plunge' for a good cause Sunday.

Organizers say the event raised $84,000, which will go to the Area 8 Special Olympics.

Thirty-five 5th and 6th graders from Washington Woods Middle School in Holt joined in on the fun.

"This world is more than just about you. You need to leave a positive footprint in everything you do in your life and Special Olympics provides an awesome opportunity for that," said participant Jodie Grusbeck.

News 10 anchor David Andrews was one of the judges at this year's 15th annual Lansing area polar plunge. This was David's 14th year as a judge.
