    More than a thousand people in Alaska braved the water temperature of 32 degrees to jump into a lake. The polar plunge was a benefit for Special Olympics Alaska, and was set to raise over $300,000 for the organization.

    • Once read that Russians used to throw their babies into Gorky Park Lake as a sort of ritual, to initiate them into the cold climate they will have to endure permanently.

      A brave plunge by the people of Alaska – should take a leaf out of their book!
