Brave volunteers who got chilly in the Swilly last December are celebrating a major fundraising success for Special Olympics Ireland.
The grand total of the Rathmullan Polar Plunge was revealed last week, with a cool €12,038.67 raised from the charity event.
Mrs Brown’s Boys actor Danny O’Carroll was joined by Team Ulster Special Olympians and students from Little Angels school for the official cheque presentation on Thursday at Milford Garda Station.
Gardaí in Milford and Letterkenny and many other local groups got ‘freezin for a reason’ on 15th December 2018 when they did the sponsored dive at Rathmullan.
Garda members who took part are dedicated to supporting and raising funds for Special Olympics Ireland along with taking the Flame of Hope across the country to raise awareness of people with intellectual disabilities.
Local Gardaí have thanked all of the different agencies and organisations which got involved in their fundraising initiative, and the general public who supported the event in large numbers.
The Law Enforcement Torch Run is the largest public awareness vehicle and grass-roots fundraiser for Special Olympics worldwide which includes Garda members from each Garda Division.
And they’re getting ready to go again with another plunge in 2019!
Date for the Diary: The 5th Law Enforcement Polar plunge will take place on the 7th December 2019 in Rathmullan!Tags:
