"It's for a great cause. It's just a moment of being really, really cold," said Kathleen Roach, Special Olympics of Wisconsin.
Dozens braved the weather, put on their Sunday best and jumped into freezing water -- all to raise money for the Special Olympics of Wisconsin.
"So I know we're not on a lake or a pond, but the water is still cold," said Captain Mike Glider, New Berlin Police Department.
Glider was one of many taking a dip for a great cause.
"The water, I heard, is 31 degrees, which you'd think that would be ice, but it's just a little bit above ice," said Glider. "I feel a little like Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic at the end when he's cold and wet and about to go down for the last time, but I think I could stay out here for a little while longer."
The goal was to raise nearly $2 million to support Special Olympics athletes.
"Across the state, police officers are out there jumping and freezing for a great cause," said Glider.
