2014 Seventh Annual Polar Bear Plunge: http://www.firstgiving.com/fasthounds.... These people raise money for greyhounds by collecting pledges and then jumping into Lake Michigan at 8:00 AM on January 1st. Today it was 23 F and the windchill was 11 F. The lake was frozen and it was unclear if people would take the plunge. This video is of the second group of people to take the plunge. Soon after they went, people who were hesitant before decided that they would go also; however, my fingers were freezing off and I stopped recording.
