SCV Sheriffs Freezin’ For A Reason

2011_polar_plunge_bear_graphicIf you’ve ever wanted to tell a cop to go jump in the lake, here’s your chance. The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station is joining in partnership to support the Special Olympics Santa Clarita Valley at the annual Polar Plunge event Saturday, February 26. Starting at 10 a.m., deputies and community members will plunge into Castaic Lake to benefit this great cause.

 

All community members are encouraged to take the plunge with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station and join all the Search and Rescue members, Sheriff’s Posse members, Sheriff Explorers, professional staff, station volunteers, and other sheriff’s station representatives who will be in attendance.

Residents, business leaders, community representatives are invited and encouraged to attend the event.

“Taking the ‘plunge’ is a fun way for individuals, groups, and corporations to raise money for Special Olympics athletes,” said Laura Mayo, Regional Director, Special Olympics Santa Clarita and Tri-Valley. “Our lake is pretty cold in February, so we still need brave souls to take the plunge for our athletes.”

To participate, each plunger must raise a minimum of $50 to race into the lake. Upon hearing the signal, all participants make an exhilarating surge at once into the chilly water. Some plungers jump into the sub-60-degree water in costume, bringing even more fun and originality to the event.

Special Olympics is the largest sports organization in the world. In Santa Clarita Valley, more than 500 athletes have experienced life-changing opportunities through year-round training and competition in Olympic-type sports.

The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

The Polar Plunge is sponsored by the Law Enforcement Torch Run, one of the largest grassroots fundraising programs for Special Olympics. Law Enforcement Torch Run raised $1 million for Special Olympics Southern California in 2010. Officers represent law enforcement agencies throughout the state and raise money through Tip-A-Cop dinners, Plane Pulls, 5K/10K runs, raffles, car shows, bike rides, Polar Plunges, Adopt-a-Cop programs, golf tournaments and other special events.
