Fleming College Paramedics Take the Plunge


Peterborough, ON (January 26, 2024) – A group of Fleming College Paramedic students are taking an icy dip for a good cause.

The Medic Mavericks team consists of Fleming students Danielle Blavert, Theo Guenther, Keyanna O’rourke, Emily Escott, Maddie Mason-Gaynor, and Taiya Martin. The team hopes to raise $1,000 for the Campbellford Memorial Hospital’s campaign to buy a new CT scanner.

Dressed in their paramedic uniforms, these six students will brave the frigid temperatures of the Trent River on Saturday, January 27, jumping in from the shoreline at Lion’s Club Park in Campbellford.

The polar plunge begins at noon.
