Woodridge's finest jump into Lake Michigan for charity

WOODRIDGE – Four village employees jumped into the frigid waters of Lake Michigan to raise money for Special Olympics Feb. 21-22.

Police officers Sean Murray and Dan McIntyre and Deputy Chief Tom Stefanson joined Chris Bethel, director of public works, in taking the plunge into the lake.

As part of the effort, the four each took 24 icy dips – once every hour – to benefit the athletes of Special Olympics. Teams were asked to raise a minimum of $2,500.

As of last week, team Woodridge PD raised $21,046, making them the third highest grossing team in the statewide event.

Donations are still being accepted and can be made by visiting the team page at www.firstgiving.com/team/249303.
