(PUEBLO, Colo.) — The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) raised $26,000 (and counting) for Special Olympics during the Polar Plunge on Saturday, March 11.
PCSO said more than 100 plungers, including Sheriff David Lucero, got “Freezin for a Reason,” to help raise funds. This is the 7th annual plunge.
“This is a fabulous opportunity to get involved with law enforcement, with first responders… And it’s really not that bad. You’re only cold for about 90 seconds,” said Dawn Ballas, a captain at the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office.
Even if they didn’t get to plunge, people can still donate to the cause a the Pueblo Polar Plunge 2023 website.
“Brr…ave,” participants, sponsors, and volunteers were thanked for another successful plunge despite, “cloudy, cold, breezy and rainy,” conditions.
