WOODSTOCK - The Polar Bear Plunge, presented by the Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run is coming to Woodstock.
Brave souls will jump into a frigid pool at the local Woodstock/Oxford Regional Fanshawe Woodstock on Monday March 9th from 3-5 pm. Oxford OPP Constable Patti Cote says they are looking for more people to join them.
"You can pay to jump or you can raise money to jump, we have sponsor forms online and it is easy to donate online with just a few clicks of the button."
Cote says Both Oxford OPP Detachment Commander Tony Hymers and Woodstock Police Chief Daryl Longworth will be taking the plunge.
"Inspector Tony Hymers is committed, myself and few other constables are going to take the plunge and we are still trying to rally a few more and I understand we will have a few members of the Woodstock Police Force joining us as well."
Cote admits she's a little nervous.
"I have had a lot of people ask me if I'm crazy for doing this, I wouldn't say I'm crazy but I am committed to the cause and it is going to be a fun day."
Everyone is invited to watch the polar plunge on Monday March 9th from 3-5 pm. All the proceeds will go towards the Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run supporting special Olympics and local athletes.
