Polar Plunge

Every year, Inspector John McGetrick and his team coordinate the Polar Plunge. The event challenges OPS members and other Ottawa-area frontline responders, and community members, to jump into a freezing tub of water – all for a good cause. Funds raised go directly to helping Ontario’s Special Olympic athletes, ensuring they have the support they need to bring home the gold. In 2019, the Ottawa plunge raised $22,000.
