    It was 24 degrees and snowing in Tulsa on Saturday morning, but that didn’t stop some of this year’s Polar Plunge participants from bringing the event’s Hawaiian theme to Big Splash — swimsuits and bright colors included. “They wouldn’t let me wear a thong,” joked Tulsa County Sheriff’s Deputy Terry Childs, dressed in a tropical-themed hat and floral print fabrics, after swimming in the water park’s 34-degree water. “So I decided to cover up for decency’s sake. It’s a cause we’ve supported for a long time, and it’s one we look forward to doing every year.” The Polar Plunge, which is part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, is a fund- raising challenge in which people dive into cold water to raise money for the nonprofit.
