New Westminster – The Metro Vancouver Transit Police (MVTP) has been a proud supporter of Special Olympics BC since 2005 and will once again be plunging into the freezing ocean in support of our BC Special Olympic athletes.
At noon, Saturday, March 3, 2018, 17 members (our largest team ever) of the MVTP will brave the chilly waters off Kitsilano Beach at the 2018 Vancouver Plunge for Special Olympics BC. Members have raised over $6600.00, this year, in support of the Special Olympics’ life changing, year-round sports programs for people with intellectual disabilities across BC. We are currently the largest law enforcement fundraising team and the second largest fundraising team overall, for this year’s event.
The Metro Vancouver Transit Police supports Special Olympics BC throughout the year with events which include a golf tournament organized by MVTP and sponsored by local businesses and by participating in The Law Enforcement Torch Run through the streets of New Westminster.
“This is another opportunity for us to support this amazing organization in enriching the lives of young people through sport,” stated Metro Vancouver Transit Police Deputy Chief Barry Kross, Chair of the BC Chief’s Law Enforcement Torch Run Committee and a member of the Law Enforcement Torch Run/Special Olympics BC Executive Council. “We are proud to, once again, freeze our badges off in support of this very worthy cause!”
