Four officers from North Division joined six other teams for a chilly dip in Lake Scugog during the Polar Plunge in Port Perry on Saturday.
Csts. Kristy Frech, Anthony Bowers, Brad Gibbs and Mike Lasseter bravely took a running leap into the frigid water, uniform and all, beside Palmer Park. They were all smiles as they warmed up in the waiting hot tub.
With the tagline "Freezin' for a Reason," the event brought groups together to raise funds for the Lakeridge Health Port Perry Hospital Auxiliary Fund. DRPS and the DRPA joined together to make a donation to the charity. The Polar Plunge is a part of Port Perry's annual Feb Fest.
