The NC State Police Department will host the 7th annual Polar Plunge and 4th annual Torch Run 5k on Saturday, Feb. 25, to benefit the North Carolina Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.
Anyone who wants to participate in the Polar Plunge is invited to dive into the chilly waters of Lake Raleigh, on Centennial Campus. For those less enthused about the icy water, there will be a Plunge Festival, which includes music, prizes, raffles, a bake sale, homemade goods and more.
The 5k runners are welcome to use the plunge as a cool down, or just participate in the run and enjoy the festivities.
The minimum donation to plunge is $50.00, and plungers will receive a free long-sleeved t-shirt.
