VERMILLION, S.D. (KTIV) - Kids and adults took the plunge for Special Olympics in Vermillion, S.D. Saturday.

Between 70 and 80 people took part in a Polar Plunge put on by Vermillion Law Enforcement Torch Run.

The Torch Run is an organization that raises money and awareness for Special Olympics South Dakota by putting on a number of fundraising events.
    
In its fifth year in Vermillion, the officers that are involved in the plunge say they're "freezin' for a reason."

"I've been heavily involved with the Law Enforcement Torch Run for about six years now," said Vermillion police officer Jon Cole. "It's a passion. Obviously, I took this job to help others, and this is a great way to give back to the community and help others that are less fortunate like the athletes of Special Olympics."

Saturday's events also featured a raffle, and awards were given out for the best costumes.
