ROCKFORD — It’s not every day that people are willing to “go jump in a lake” – particularly in the winter – let alone do so with thousands of other people, including members of the law enforcement community.
But that’s exactly what will happen on March 2 at Rock Cut State Park as part of the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge® to benefit Special Olympics Illinois.
Locally, teams signed up to participate in the Polar Plunge will “jump into” Olson Lake at Rock Cut State Park in Rockford on March 2.
“The Rochelle Police Department has a team signed up to participate again this year,” Sandy Sullivan, dispatch supervisor said. “We appreciate any donations that the community is willing to give.”
Any adventurous soul is invited to join law enforcement officers by donning bathing suits, costumes or any clothing of choice (just no wet suits!) to jump in a lake. Each plunger must collect a minimum of $75 in donations that will be used to support Special Olympics programs in Illinois.For the complete article see the 02-14-2013 issue.
