Challenge Gets Local Organizations To Raise Money For Needy Police Officers And Their Families

by Staff | June 11th, 2014

For some people there is nothing more invigorating than jumping into a freezing cold body of water. Just look at the Polar Bear Clubs around the nation and the recently trending videos of cold water challenges that are taking place.

For others, there is no better feeling in the world than helping others. That’s why our team of Terre Haute personal injury attorneys at the law firm of Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin have combined these two activities for the betterment of our community.

Our firm has partnered with the local fire and police departments—as well as The Soggy Donut Fund—to raise money through a corporate cold water challenge. To kick off the event, Fire Chief Jeff Fisher and the founder of The Soggy Donut Fund, Brad Newman, each stood in front of a fire hose in order to raise money for the organization to use to assist the needy families of police officers who are injured or killed in the line of duty.

The event raised more than $550 with more expected to come in as the challenge grows after a video of the challenge was posted to Facebook. Fisher and Newman have challenged the Vigo County Courthouse, City Hall, and local business, Eyecare Express to complete the same challenge. If they do, they can raise funds for The Soggy Donut Fund and pass the challenge on to another participant. If they fail to complete the challenge, they owe $100 to The Soggy Donut Fund.

At Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, helping others is a mission that is dear to the hearts of each member of our legal team. Learn more about our attorneys and what giving back means to them by checking out our website.
