Local law enforcers take the plunge

Local area Law Enforcement Agencies are planning a freezing good time Saturday, January 26th 2013 at Oak Mountain State Park Beach. That's the site of the Third Annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Polar Plunge and the First Annual Polar Bear Challenge.

The challenge, the first of the two events, kicks off at 9:00 am. Law enforcers will run a little over one mile with 10 obstacles along the way. The plunge will begin at the conclusion of the challenge at 10:00 am when all participants will run into the chilly waters of the lake.

Everyone is encouraged to check out the event schedule, course map and register early at
