In a display of community spirit, local RCMP officers took on the chilling challenge of diving into icy waters to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics athletes in BC. Numerous members of the Chilliwack RCMP, along with other local supporters dove into Cultus Lake on Tuesday February 27th with temperatures close to zero degrees Celsius.
