Natatia Bledsoe is the public information officer for the Fredericksburg Police Department.
City officer will take the “Plunge” for Special Olympics
This year’s Polar Plunge Festival to benefit Virginia Special Olympics will be held on February 4 & 5 in Virginia Beach. The Police Department has always been a strong supporter of the Special Olympics through participation in the Law Enforcement Torch Run and the Polar Plunge. Unfortunately we were unable to form a team to take the Plunge in 2011, but we do have ONE BRAVE SOUL who will be carrying our honor on his broad shoulders………..Paul Dooley! Paul will once again jump into the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean dressed in his highly recognizable costume as the Cookie Monster (see photo above).
