BATON ROUGE - Law enforcement agencies from across the area are teaming up to raise money for Special Olympics by taking the Polar Plunge.

This year's plunge is Saturday, February 28th at 9 a.m. at the Cabela's in Gonzales. This is the eighth year of the event. There are typically around 100 participants every year. Proceeds go to Special Olympics.

"We have 13,000 athletes in the state of Louisiana that need our help every year to get them to their Special Olympic events," BRPD Chief Carl Dabadie explained this morning on 2une In. "But the sad part is, we have 13,000 more that are waiting."

There's still time to register if you haven't yet.
