Patrick Brown Is About To Do Something Unusual


If you were looking for an opportunity to see a politician do something strange an unconventional, then this weekend there is that very opportunity, but at least it’s for a good cause.Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown, along with Peel Regional Police chief Chris McCord, Deputy Chief Marc Andrews and about 100 other participants will be taking part in the annual Polar Bear Plunge, whereby participants will be jumping into freezing cold water.

Since 2015, the Polar Plunge has raised $146,750 for Special Olympics, with 100 per cent of the proceeds benefiting the athletes through sports programs, uniforms and accommodations for events.

The event will be taking place at the Peel Regional Police Association on 10675 Mississauga Road in Brampton. Anyone can register for the plunge, simply donate, sponsor a participant or attend the event to give support.

Registration:                       4:30pm - 6:00pm

Opening remarks:               6:00pm - 6:30pm

Plunge begins:                    6:30pm

Registration Fee: Cadets/ Recruits $25 (or raise $50.00 to waive the fee), Adult Registration $75 (or raise $150.00 to waive the fee)

Prizes will be awarded for the Top Earning Team and Top Earning Individual. The deadline for online donations is midnight on February 7.

Event organizers advise to bring some warm, dry clothes to change into afterwards, because it seems participants have the option of either changing into proper swimwear for the plunge, or just jumping in fully clothed in regular business attire!
