Splash and Dash

It seems that lunacy sometimes reigns here in Racine. Sometimes for a good cause. This year is no exception! Racine's 20th annual Splash and Dash -- sometimes known as the Polar Bear Plunge went off no problems this year. This event is when people strip down to their bathing suits and take a leap into the frigid waters of Lake Michigan! ( this morning temperature was about 17 degrees) To me, that's insane! But it was all for a good cause...

Here is a video from the 2008's event.

What was the good cause it was for?

Barbara, it was for the Racine County Food Bank and HALO (Homeless Assistance Leadership Organization).
