Johns Creek Police 'take the plunge' for Special Olympics

January 20, 2015

Polar PlungeJohns Creek Police officers will charge into the frigid waters of Lake Lanier as part of the Special Olympics Georgia's 6th annual "Polar Plunge" fundraiser, Saturday, Feb. 21, at Lake Lanier Islands Beach and Water Park.

All donations received go directly to Special Olympics Georgia. You can donate any pledge amount by visiting the JCPD donation page. Pledges from any participating Johns Creek group automatically are credited to the Johns Creek Police Department. Johns Creek Police and their friends raised almost $25,000 in the 2014 Polar Plunge.

To "plunge" yourself, register at the Special Olympics of Georgia website. Participants must raise $55 or more. Be sure to note on the application that you're "plunging" on behalf of the Johns Creek Police Department.

This is the fourth year that the JCPD has participated in the Polar Plunge, the largest fundraising effort for all Special Olympics organizations across the U.S.

Questions about participation in the JCPD's support of the Special Olympics Georgia Polar Plunge can be directed to Maj. John Clifton at 678-474-1600.
