More than 100 people jumped into the icy waters of Lake Carolina Saturday morning to help raise money for Children's Charities of the Midlands.
If there's one time of year you wouldn't want to go swimming in the Midlands, it would be January.
But that's exactly what more than 100 people did Saturday morning at Lake Carolina's Polar Bear Plunge. Swimmers braved 47-degree waters and took a plunge into the lake to help raise money for the Children's Charities of the Midlands. The event raised more than $1,500 for the charity and gave more than just a few people the shivers.
