Waukegan polar plunge kicks off new year
January 1, 2014 (WAUKEGAN, Ill.) (WLS) -- A couple dozen brave souls took part in the 15th annual Polar Beach Plunge in Waukegan.
Some braved the icy waters in nothing but swimsuits, while others covered themselves in a couple layers of clothes before taking the plunge.
The proceeds raised from Wednesday morning's event will go to a scholarship program that helps those with disabilities.
