January 2, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
Some people in Boulder, Colorado threw caution and their clothes to the wind all for a good cause. The 28th annual Alzheimer's Polar Plunge took place Saturday at the Boulder Reservoir.

The event was scheduled to take place at noon but started a little early because it was so cold outside.

The wind chill was six degrees and 750 people took part in the event.

Divers, a medical crew and a hot tub were all on standby to help the polar plungers.
