The Special Olympics of Kansas got a helping hand from the Wichita Police over the weekend.

During the year, the Wichita Police Department's Broadway corridor assists with several volunteer events. This weekend, they were at College Hill pool, taking part in the Polar Plunge. 

This years' Polar Plunge featured many contests: best costume, individual and group, top fundraising, and individual and group team with most participants.

Police say the event raised between five and six thousand dollars. The proceeds will go to help more than 4,000 Kansas athletes with intellectual disabilities on the playing field this year.
