A group of brave souls took a dip into Lake Michigan Sunday morning for the Polar Plunge, which helps raise money for Special Olympics Illinois.Some participants were in costumes, while others dressed down to their bathing suits.

A Mexico vacation package was being given away as an incentive to get people to take the frigid dip.
