Special Olympics Indiana had close to 700 people sign up for the event since December. Many high school teams and sororities took part in the event, along with people dressing up in costumes.
“The Evolution of Forrest Gump,” a group of people dressed up in the stages of Forrest, won the costume contest.
After the second plunge at 10:30 a.m., the plungers were able to go to the Pike Freshman Center to get some hot meals and relax.
“This winter has been tough, so it’s just crazy that people come out and support this,” Adjei said. “There’s really a camaraderie here; it’s a good time.”
