Gary Sokolotuk couldn't let the opportunity pass him by. The long-time organizer of the Special Olympics in Kenora was among two dozen, who helped raise money for the cause through the polar plunge yesterday at Anicinabe Park.

"It was chilling, and we've gotta be thankful to all the people, who were willing to jump into this cold water," he said, as he dried himself off.

The plunge was part of kenora winter carnival weekend. They also included Q104's Kim Leduc, who took the polar plunge at Anicinabe Park for Special Olympics yesterday.

"It feels really good right now, actually. I'm still cold, but I didn't need the warming trailer," she said. "By all means, while I was in there it was pretty cold, but it's for a good cause. I feel good." 

The plunge was among a host of activities yesterday, during Kenora's winter carnival.
