Fort Collins Police Chief John Hutto and Poudre Fire Authority Fire Chief Tom DeMint were joined by a bunch of Fort Collins Police employees in the annual Polar Plunge fundraiser benefiting Special Olympics Colorado on February 9th. The group jumped in the cold waters of the Boulder Reservoir on a morning when the air temperature barely reached 32 degrees, but they raised over $2000 dollars for the athletes.

Teams from the Larimer County Sheriff’s Department and the Larimer County District Attorney’s Office also participated in the Polar Plunge.

Special Olympics of Colorado provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

Brian and I did something similar to this a few years ago. We jumped into a giant fish tank at a boat show and swam with an enormous catfish. Wish we would have raised money for charity that day. Ours was just torture with no benefit. I took a picture of Brian getting out of the tank from my scrapbook, so the quality is not fantastic, but here is a look back.

Here’s more photos from the Polar Plunge:
