Polar Bear Dip in Clear Lake

It's only going to get colder this week.

Now imagine jumping into a lake this time of year... talk about a total shock to the system.

Kimt news 3's alex jirgens spoke with some brave people who took that plunge today á all for a good the water in clear lake is frigid á and mostly iced over.

You probably you don't want to jump in there right?

Many hearty souls made the sacrifice and took the polar plunge into clear lake á all to raise money for kids in need this holiday season.

Nat no matter the outfit á simple or outlandish á nat ... groups of people jumped á walked á or dived right into the icy cold water at city beach this afternoon.

For starters á it can be a shock to the system.

"for the first year when i was a rookie, i dive in and it's another shock."

Those who have taken part in polar plunges in the past are likely to have a certain strategy.

"you go out there, you high five all the emts and you dive in on the way out since it's a shock."

Nat but these brave souls are willing to dive in to make sure kids get a christmas this year.

That's because all the funds raised go to make a wish and toys for tots.

"make a wish happens to be really close to my heart, so anything to help the local make a wish families.

And toys for tots is a great organization as well.

I'll freeze in the water for a little bit to raise some money for those organizations."

For those that have yet to take a step in cold water á val has some advice.

" the least amount of clothing you wear in the better because you have less drag, less weighing you down.

Your heart's already pumping enough if you're just after a final tally á 180 jumpers took the plunge today.

They raised about 85á hundred dollars.///
