A "New York fish" will be swimming in Lake Michigan this weekend. "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon accepted Mayor Rahm Emanuel's challenge to participate in the Polar Plunge this Sunday.
@jimmyfallon: "I'm in. Lake Michigan will have a New York fish this weekend... #swimmy Fallon."
@jimmyfallon: "Chicago - I'm wearing a suit and tie for the #PolarPlunge. Show solidarity by wearing a necktie. (I'm not telling you what else to wear.)"
"Hey Jimmy Fallon, got this for you. See, I told you, the City of Big Shoulders has your back. Check out #jimmyplungewithus on Twitter for the proof."
The polar plunge benefits the Special Olympics. The Polar Plunge raised $800,000 for the competition last year.
Emanuel joined Good Day Chicago live from Washington D.C. Tuesday morning, to talk about the Fallon challenge and President Obama's announcement about bringing a digital hub to Chicago.
