Minneapolis Polar Plungers take icy baths for charity

Brave, charitable souls flocked to Lake Calhoun on Saturday for the annual Minneapolis Polar Plunge. Before jumping into the frigid lake water, teams and individuals took donation pledges for Special Olympics Minnesota. More than 20 plunges and related events are held around the state, raising nearly $3 million so far. All photos by Billy Briggs on March 5, 2016.
