INDIANAPOLIS (March 5, 2016) -- Hundreds of Hoosiers took the plunge Saturday.

The 17th annual Polar Plunge at Eagle Creek Beach raised money for Special Olympics Indiana.

This is the organization's largest fundraiser of the year.

Nearly 800 people took part, which will help more than 11,000 Special Olympic athletes statewide with intellectual disabilities.

"I get nervous every run," Jordan Legrand said, a participant. "But at the end I'm so glad I did it. It's always a rush."

CBS4 was a proud partner of Saturday's event.

After the plunge, participants were invited to the Colts Complex to warm up.
