Freezin’ for a reason: Boulder police to “plunge” for Special Olympics
Boulder Police Department (BPD) officers and employees will head to the Boulder Reservoir later this month for the Law Enforcement Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics.
BPD has long supported the 11,000+ Colorado Special Olympics athletes and on Saturday, Feb. 18, at 1 p.m. our team, the “Boulder Police Copsicles,” will jump into the icy waters of the Boulder Rez, with all the proceeds going to Special Olympics.
It's all for a great cause, and easy to register your own Plunge Team or join our "Copsicles" Team at www.firstgiving.com/soco/boulder-polar-plunge. The Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge for Special Olympics is a community event for everyone. Although many Law Enforcement agencies are represented at the Plunge, it's not required to be a "Copsicle."
This is a fun event, but if braving the winter waters of the Boulder Reservoir isn’t quite on your list of things to do this winter, you may want to consider registering as a “chicken coop” participant. It’s warmer, and costumes are encouraged! The registration link for “chicken coop” participation is the same as above.
If you’d like to make a donation to support Special Olympics, here’s your link: www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/letrdave.
For more information about this event, you may also contact Sgt. Dave Seper at 303-441-3467.
** Photos of last year’s Law Enforcement Polar Plunge are attached. Sgt. Dave Seper of the Boulder Police Department is the one with the polar bear (yes, it’s Photoshopped!), and Officer Sterling Ekwo is the one running on top of the water. (That’s real). And here’s a YouTube video of last year’s Polar Plunge: http://youtu.be/7QHOjB8-K1Y
