Johns Creek’s finest will be Johns Creek’s coldest on Feb. 20 when Johns Creek Police brave the freezing waters of Lake Lanier to raise money in the Special Olympics Georgia Polar Plunge at Lake Lanier Islands.
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 more than $40,000 in the 2015 Polar Plunge, and about $70,000 for the year.
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. Gates open at 11 a.m. and the event begins at 1:30 p.m.
This is the fifth 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. For information about the event, visit the Special Olympics Georgia Polar Plunge website
