Saturday, the weather is going to be about 25 degrees in South Lake Tahoe when the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office's own, Deputy DeLeon, Sgt Seligsohn, Correctional Officer Foster, and Sheriff's Technician Smithcamp, will participate in the Polar Plunge. The team formed after meeting Jack, a Special Olympian, who is planning to plunge with the EDSO team.

The team is looking for support, and donations, for the Special Olympics. You can read more about it at the link below. We wish you luck during your frigid swim in Lake Tahoe. 

"Perfect weather for a swim?" asks the team.

"We hope you will join our team and help us raise funds for Special Olympics.

Yes it takes a lot of guts to jump in the chilly waters of Lake Tahoe in the middle of winter, but we're crazy enough to do it. Are you? You can dip your big toe or your whole body, it is completely up to you.

Plunging not your thing? Register as a chicken and you can still be a part of our team. You'll be excused from plunging but not all the fun we'll have.

Everyone who raises a minimum of $125 will receive a polar plunge long sleeved t-shirt and free admittance to the post plunge party immediately after the plunge.

Come on! You can do it! Wet or dry, take the plunge with us for Special Olympics!

Call me crazy, but on March 17, 2018, I am going to "Feel the Thrill of the Chill" by taking a quick dip in the chilly waters of Lake Tahoe to raise money for Special Olympics.  I'm hoping I can count on you to support my fundraising efforts.   The funds I raise will help change the lives of children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them the confidence they need to be successful in life.
