The Plunge into Carlyle Lake will take place on February 27. Local officers, including Chief Van Hook, will once again take part. The department has posted a link to their team page requesting that residents consider donating to the cause. Any donation amount will greatly benefit the athletes.
The department laid out some examples of how a gift can help…
• $10: Covers the cost of a medal for an athlete. Help us put as many medals as we can around the necks of these proud victors.
• $25: Supports local competitions throughout Illinois. These events serve the most – and most in need – athletes.
• $50: Establishes a Player Development Model for athletes on the autism spectrum and/or with sensory considerations.
• $100: Provides a free health screening for an athlete allowing them to compete in one of 19 sports!
• $250: Provides Global Messenger training – a weekend-long course for athletes who want to tell their story!
If you are interested in donating, please visit the O’Fallon Police Department’s facebook page where they have a link to their donation page.
