Jumpers Brave Chilly Waters For A Good Cause

Jumpers Brave Chilly Waters For A Good Cause

The sun is shining but the water was far from warm at the 16th Annual Polar Plunge in Sioux Falls.

Over 170 jumpers braved the chilly water today.

The 50 degree water didn't keep participants from "freezing for a reason" as they raise money for Special Olympics.

“The polar plunges are a very huge part of the fundraising effort and stuff for Special Olympics South Dakota. Without events like this we couldn’t keep our doors open,” Torch Run Liaison Todd Badwisch said.

Law Enforcement Torch Run partners with the Special Olympics to put on 15 of the chilly events throughout the year. Today’s plunge raised over $55,000.

Another Polar Plunge will take place in Aberdeen tomorrow.
