It was a chilly evening for a swim in Windsor but the cause was enough to coax hundreds of people into a dip downtown.

Outside of the aquatic centre, the polar plunge raised money for Special Olympics Ontario.

This year, organizers set a $70,000 fundraising goal, counting about $72,000 before the first plunge.

The partnership between St. Clair College and Windsor police has been going strong for 10 years.
