What a day for a dip

The Maple Grove Polar Bear Plunge took place Saturday, Feb. 2, at Fish Lake in Maple Grove. The high temperature was 16 degrees on Feb. 2, which is below average according to The Weather Channel, but teams warmed up in tents and hot tubs after their plunge, all for a good cause. There were 780 participants taking part in the event that benefits the Special Olympics of Minnesota. This year’s plunge raised $158,000.
