Shane Roell shows warm heart in cold water

Congratulations to Shane Roell, president of the Shelbyville, Indiana, VC Aktion Club! On February 22, he helped the Versailles Polar Bear Plunge raise more than US$50,000 for the first time in the event's history. And he did it by showing some serious toughness.

The "plunge" is a winter-time event in which some hardy folks get into the cold water at Versailles State Park in Indiana. Shane was one of 188 people who participated--and one of several Special Olympics athletes who jumped in to the fun. In fact, the funds from the event were raised for Special Olympics.

The event also included a 5K run and a 3K walk.
