People plunged Saturday to benefit Special Olympics South Dakota
VERMILLION, SD (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.
Winds ripped dozens of trees from the ground, snapped limbs, and scattered debris. Rain flooded fairways and greens. Monday morning, golf course officials checked out the damage from the storm. More >>
