Taking the plunge…

sptphrgRangelyPolarPlungeRangely Police Chief Vince Wilczek led the charge of 38 persons crazy enough to plunge into Kenney Reservoir on Saturday to raise funds for Western Colorado Special Olympics. There were roughly 160 people present to witness the first-ever Western Colorado Polar Plunge into the 39-degree water at the reservoir, according to organizer Norian James, a sports medicine caregiver for Special Olympics. It was cold enough that some of the contestants were seen wiping tears out of their eyes.
