They did it, jumped into a frozen lake!

By German Sferra

Well, they were much braver then the rest of us.

Members of the front office staff dressed in Rapids uniforms and old cheerleader outfits and topped with a Rapids burgundy beanie jumped into the icy waters of Chatfield Reservoir this afternoon as part of the 4th Annual Colorado Polar Plunge to help raise money for the Special Olympics.

At a little after 1 pm, with the temperature not quite at 20 degrees, the group walked out on the ice of the reservoir to the cut out triangle that formed the four feet deep 'pool.' I can only imagine the questions going through their heads as they stood on the edge and finally jumped in.

Well done, crew!
