Some brave souls could not wait for summer to jump into Lake Michigan. So, they took the plunge Saturday.They did it for a good cause: to raise money for the Special Olympics.

A league of 23 elite plungers leaped into Lake Michigan's freezing water during this the second year for the so-called "Super Plunge."

Saturday's action at Northwestern University's North Beach in Evanston was the first of many planned over the next three weekends.
