LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. -- FOX 4's Karli Ritter, Nick Vasos and 9 a.m. producer Camissa Hill braved 39-degree water temperatures and took a pre-Polar Bear Plunge on Thursday.

The 2012 Polar Bear Plunge will be held Saturday at Longview Lake and Shawnee Mission Lake. According to Nick, it's a great way to support the Special Olympics.

"The Special Olympics go about fundraising in a unique way," he said. "They try to get people out of their comfort zones in an effort to show what Special Olympians go through in their events."
