Cold Water Plunge raises money for Middle Point Fire & Rescue
By Sam Shriver, Multimedia Video Journalist - bio | email
Workers at Middle Point's Ridgeview Behavioral Hospital decided today was a good day to take a swim. It was all for a good cause of course... They did it to raise money for the Middle Point Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company. The idea for the cold water plunge came from Chris Lybold... a clinical nurse manager at Ridgeview. Someone challenged him to a plunge and in turn he challenged the whole hospital staff to take a dip too. Lybold says they hoped to raise one thousand dollars from the cold water plunge.
