PHOTOS: Eagan PD Takes the Plunge in Sesame Street and Muppet Costumes

Burnsville's Crystal Lake drew Vikings, pirates and even Dorothy and Toto during the South Metro Polar Bear Plunge—an annual fundraiser for Special Olympics Minnesota.

Saturday, hundreds crowded around Crystal Lake in Burnsville to watch their friends and neighbors brave the icy waters during the South Metro Polar Bear Plunge—an annual fundraiser for Special Olympics Minnesota.

Event coordinator Megan Lewis said 940 people—including several members of the Eagan Police Department—registered to take a one-time dip in the chilly water for charity, raising $200,000 at the south metro event alone. There are 18 total Polar Bear Plunge events in Minnesota.
