Cleveland Police take the plunge at the 2017 Polar Bear Plunge

The Cleveland Police Foundation was proud to be a supporter of the Cleveland Police, or Policicles, at the 2017 Polar Bear Plunge for the Special Olympics!

The Policicles won the Best Team Costume Award for their Gilligan’s Island theme, which came complete with their personal rendition of the theme song. This year was dedicated to our good friend and captain, the late Captain Tom Tube!

This event raised nearly $60,000 for Special Olympics Ohio. Thank you to all the officers, and friends and families, that participated and donated to this great cause. Great job Cleveland Policicles!
