Leduc, Alberta – Leduc RCMP are #FreezinForAReason in their 3rd annual Polar Plunge to support Special Olympics athletes in the Leduc community.
The Polar Plunge annual events have moved to a virtual event again this year and Leduc RCMP decided to get creative in support of Special Olympics Alberta. On Jan. 22, 2022 Leduc RCMP Team Copsicles achieved their initial fundraising goal of $250 and team captain, Constable Cheri-Lee Smith along with Constable Hannah Willoughby did a snow angel as a show of appreciation to supporters.
On. Feb. 10, 2022 at 5 p.m., to continue their fundraising efforts, Cst. Cheri-Lee Smith will again be #FreezinForAReason with Leduc County Fire Chief Keven Lefebvre where they will be going for a bone-chilling dip in a 4000L portable water tank.
The final Polar Plunge will be done by members of team Copsicles on March 5, 2022 in partnership with City of Leduc Fire Services where they will chill-out while being sprayed by a fire hose.
“T’is the season to be freezin and we are looking forward to the opportunity to raise awareness and donations in support of Special Olympic athletes” says Constable Cheri-Lee Smith.
