HELENA — There’s nothing like jumping in the snow to make snow angels...when you have the proper clothing on, like these men, pictured above, do not.

Things can get a little chilly but luckily for these men, they have experience handling hard challenges, they all work in local law enforcement agencies, except for one gentleman, Cody Kuhlman (pictured second from the left).

"I've done basketball, track, and bowling. I've been in the Special Olympics for 10 years," says Kuhlman.

Kuhlman is a Special Olympics Montana athlete of 10 years. He’s supported the organization and this year is no different. Despite the polar plunge being virtual, it still doesn't stop Kuhlman and his team from plunging.

"It just means so much. These guys are so important to us,” says Randy Robinson, a Detective with the Helena Police Department. “Cody and I have been hanging out for a few years now together and doing things. I just like seeing him succeed and it makes him feel so good to get together and succeed together. I think it's important that we support that."

Kuhlman reached his team goal of raising $900.

"I want everybody to go online and support the Special Olympics," says Kuhlman.
