Edmonds officers take plunge for Special Olympics

Post-plunge: Detective McIntyre, Sgt. Marsh, Officer Sutton, Officer Yamane.

A group of Edmonds’ finest joined nearly 500 other participants in last Saturday’s Polar Plunge at Seattle’s South Lake Union. The event brought law enforcement officers from around the state together in an effort to raise support and funding for Special Olympics Washington.

Edmonds Police Sgt. Mark Marsh partnered with Detective Brian McIntyre and Officers Earl Yamane and Ross Sutton to take the plunge — all to help our state’s special athletes. Braving the chilly 43-degree outside temperature on a drizzly Saturday morning, the Edmonds officers entered South Lake Union where they found little relief, given the frigid 45-degree water temperature.

The event raised more than $122,000 for Special Olympics.
