On the morning of Saturday, Feb. 11th a team of Multnomah County employees from the Department of Community Justice (DCJ) plunged into the Columbia River at Broughton Beach for the annual Polar Plunge. The event benefits Special Olympics Oregon and is supported by Oregon Law Enforcement.   

This is an growing tradition for DCJ whose team size has tripled in recent years.  This year, DCJ had 13 employees volunteer and together they raised $2,391 – vastly exceeding their original goal of $500.   

DCJ would like to recognize and thank its team members: 

  • Brian Holt, team captain
  • Charles Adler
  • Alejandro Aguilar
  • Michelle Aguilar
  • Kerrie Behrman
  • Brenda Bunce
