A swim suit for a winter plunge


ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Well-suited to the event, in a thrift-shop suit and tie he bought for the occasion, Lee Kindell takes the plunge into Puget Sound Saturday in support of Special Olympics Polar Plunge. He was one of 505 people who entered the 44-degree waters off Golden Gardens and raised almost $150,000. Participants came from Bellingham to Centralia and included police and sheriff's departments, university groups and individuals. Blue Thunder provided high-spirited sounds. Dan Wartelle of Special Olympics says 78 cents of every dollar raised goes back into sports and programming.
