Every year, thousands of people jump into freezing cold water to support Special Olympics Minnesota. And one Grand Marais woman has been taking part for eight years—going on nine, Bryann Bockovich.

Bryann often recruits friends to take the plunge with her, which is the case this year. Joining her on the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics on Saturday, February 15 are Heather Smith and Monica Wilson.

Their team name is “Holli’s Hope,” in honor of Bryann’s young friend Holli, who is a Special Olympic athlete.
