Polar Plunges would not happen without the support of Law Enforcement!
Polar Plunges are just one of the events that are part of the year-round fundraiser known as the Law Enforcement Torch Run®, through which Law Enforcement personnel from across the state of South Dakota raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics. Throughout the year, men and women in Law Enforcement volunteer their time and energy to host events to support Special Olympics South Dakota. In 2014 alone, their amazing efforts raised over $584,000 for our athletes!
While the Law Enforcement Torch Run® hosts many events each year, Polar Plunges are the most well-known events held across the state. Law Enforcement officials sit on the planning committees at all Plunge locations, volunteer on the day of the Plunge, recruit the Dive Teams, help set up and tear down at each Plunge site and work year-round to make these events a huge success.
Make sure to give any Law Enforcement officials a BIG PLUNGE THANK YOU when you see them at any of our events. We couldn’t Plunge without them!
