Ruston Chief Dunks For Special Olympics

Ruston's Police Chief Jeremy Kunkel was one of the many officers who took the Polar Bear Plunge in our back yard this weekend. The event raised funds for Special Olympics, an event near and dear to police agencies across the state. This was the first police/Special Olympics PBP in Tacoma-Pierce County. The goal was to exceed Seattle's first year total of $20,000. Thanks to the effort of many great officers, including our own, the event raised $70,000!

Chief Kunkel thanked the many generous community members who donated to his run into the very cold waters off Owens Beach on Saturday. You can watch the craziness (including some great footage of Kunkel) on this video link here... As always, good work Jeremy!
