Bone chilling temperatures didn't stop hundreds of people from taking a dip this weekend in Seattle, Wash.

The third annual Polar Bear Plunge at Alki Beach was all in an effort to benefit the Special Olympics. City leaders and law enforcement officers even joined in on the fun.

Organizers hoped to raise more than $40,000.
