Oak Bay hosts the inaugural Vancouver Island Polar Plunge for Special Olympics BC
Plungers must raise a minimum $75 ($50 for students) for the opportunity to brave cold waters, earn awesome incentives, and support Special Olympics BC.
The Polar Plunge, this is the first in Victoria, is part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run events that include Free the Fuzz (May) where officers camp out at Uptown shopping centre and the torch run traditionally in June.
Const. Sheri Lucas of Oak Bay Police Department is among those spearheading the event.
Lucas and Cpl. Pat Bryant of Central Saanich Police Service took a dip today (Feb. 15) at Willows Beach to promote the event.
