The weather may have warmed up a little, but Lake Michigan is still pretty chilly.Nevertheless, that didn't stop dozens of people from taking part in Sunday morning's 'Polar Plunge' at North Avenue Beach.

Prizes were awarded for best costumes, top fundraisers and largest team, but the big winner was Special Olympics Chicago.

The money raised helps pay for training, travel, uniforms and awards.
