Lawmakers polar plunge for charity in Lansing

Capitol polar plunge

LANSING, MICH - Usually when we see  state lawmakers in Lansing they're all about business.

Thursday, March 2, many took time to have some fun, braving the cold to jump into the freezing waters of a swimming pool outside the capitol.

This is the legislative polar plunge to benefit Special Olympics Michigan.

Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley was involved, along with State Senator Rick Jones, who kept up his tradition, wearing a suit and tie.

The polar plunges, held all over the state are the largest fundraiser for Special Olympics athletes. Special Olympics tells us 50 people were involved and $30,000 was raised.
