Yakima Polar Plunge 2012

The Yakima Police Department is asking people to take a dive into freezing waters to benefit Special Olympics athletes.

It's part of the annual Yakima Polar Plunge -- organized by the police department.

Money raised from the event will be donated to the Special Olympics of Washington.

Last year, the event raised about $18,000.

If you don't want to get wet, you can support a plunger with your donations online.
