Freezin' for a reason

Members of the Vancouver Police Department will be taking the plunge this afternoon to benefit some special athletes.

VPD Chief Const. Adam Palmer and Vancouver police staff will be “freezin’ for a reason” in the chilly waters off Kits Beach in support of the 2018 Vancouver Polar Plunge for Special Olympics BC (SOBC).

Law enforcement will be charging into the water alongside corporate teams, students and other fearless participants dressed in colourful costumes.

The third annual Vancouver Polar Plunge is being staged in partnership with the Law Enforcement Torch Run for SOBC. It will include a costume contest, law enforcement vehicles on display, appearances by a VPD bagpiper, and plenty of food and give-aways.

In 55 communities around the province, the Special Olympics provide year-round training and competitive opportunities in 18 different sports to more than 4,600 athletes of all ages and a wide range of abilities - thanks to the dedicated efforts of over 3,900 volunteers.
