SYRACUSE — An estimated 67 people and one dog participated in Saturday’s Polar Plunge at Oakwood Resort in Syracuse Saturday.

The event was a fundraiser for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Kosciusko County. Air temperature was about 39 degrees when the event began.

Ice estimated to be about six inches thick had to be removed along the shore of Lake Wawasee for the plunge.
