[ARCHIVED] A Cold Dip to Benefit the 2018 Special Olympics Athletes


Today, 14 intrepid Eugene Police employees from dispatch, records and patrol braved a cold morning dip in the river for Special Olympics Polar Plunge. Even K9 Cwyk (pronounced 'Quick') got into the spirit of things. As of last night, the team had donated $650 and Eugene Police Employees Association charity fund donated on behalf of the members who jumped in the icy waters.

The Eugene Police team joined with other teams from around the area to plunge into the Willamette River plunge to benefit Special Olympics.

According to organizers of The Polar Plunge, it “is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to support Special Olympics Oregon athletes by jumping, walking or slowly crawling into the frigid and icy Oregon waters. The event is open to the public, and all spectators are welcome free of charge. The best way to plunge is with a team, so start planning yours for next year! Get your friends, family members, co-workers and boss to take the plunge with you.

This amazing event is done all over the world every year to support our athletes.
