LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana State Police Troopers are taking the Polar Plunge this Saturday.

While jumping into freezing cold water might sound crazy to some, troopers are doing it for a good cause: to raise money for the Special Olympics. 

Last year, more than 3,500 people took part in the annual event, which raised $920,000 to support year-round programs for athletes. 

ISP Sgt. Carey Huls and his team, "The Snow Troopers," are asking for help and support.

"Myself, some troopers and family along with a host of other great people from around the area jumping into this cold water to to support Special Olympics," Huls said in a video posted to Facebook

The temperature Saturday is forecasted to dip to 10 degrees, with the high at just 33 degrees.
