The latest in law enforcement and emergency responders to answer the Polar Plunge challenge that came out of Prince Rupert has seen the Terrace office of the BC Sheriff Service take to the icy waters of the Northwest in support of BC Special Olympics.
The Terrace group took their Plunge on March 18th
The Polar Plunge activity goes back to early February when Prince Rupert RCMP member Constable Brody Hemrich took a dive into the waters of Seal Cove, from there a challenge to other detachments across Northwest BC grew to include other services.
From that leap the challenge was taken up by the West Coast Marine Unit, as well as RCMP members in Terrace, Kitimat and other areas of the region.
The Prince Rupert RCMP social media stream has been following some of those answers to the initial challenge issued by Constable Hemrich.
The Plunge has become something of a BC theme in recent weeks, with a growing list of those who have taken on similar fundraising in their communities.
The support providing for a significant boost to fundraising for the BC Special Olympics Program, you can check out some of that support here.
