More than 400 people braved the frigid waters of the Mississippi River to raise money for the Special Olympics. Since 1999, plungers and their supporters have raised over $20 million for Special Olympics Wisconsin athletes.

Donations support the 18 different Olympic-type sports offered year-round, including National and World Games, as well as free health care screenings to ensure optimal health and performance during competition.
