POLAR PLUNGE

Let’s Do Something Crazy Together
Crestwood Copsicles Want You 

This is the 5th year in a row that Crestwood police officers have formed the “Crestwood Copsicles” and have taken part in the annual polar plunge to raise money for the athletes of Special Olympics.

In 2013, 60 people joined the team, raised $35,624.00 and took the plunge.
This year we need your help. You do not need to be a police officer to be on our team. We can assist you in starting your own fundraising page, then you ask friends and family to sponsor you. Each person taking the plunge must raise a minimum of $75.00. It is such an awesome event for such an awesome organization. Let’s all show our community spirit and take the plunge together.

This year the polar plunge at Lake Manteno will be on March 1st and the plunging starts at noon.
