MINDEN, Nev. — For the second year, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office deputies and the Explorer’s got their BRRRRR on during the annual Polar Plunge at Zephyr Cove on Saturday, March 20, 2017 benefitting Northern Nevada Special Olympics and bringing awareness to those outstanding athletes. Participants walked, ran or slowly crawled into the icy water, which was about 54 degrees.

This event sets the stage for the upcoming Law Enforcement Torch Relay Run that takes place Friday June 9, 2017 which also benefits Special Olympics. Deputies are honored to team up with Special Olympic athletes and carry the “Flame of Hope” torch down Highway 395.

The DCSO team “Frosty 5-0” is pictured from the top left to right: Charity Rosier, Matthew Mastrian, Nick Troolines, Manuel Castrellon (lower left) Faith Rosier, Fallon Montanucci, Brady McLaughlin and Katelyn Wiggins. All of the Explorers were proud to participate and support the Special Olympics athletes.
