Avon hosted its annual Polar Plunge benefiting the Colorado Special Olympics on Saturday at Nottingham Lake.

The event raised more than $6,000, which allows Special Olympic athletes to be able to compete in events around the state and world.

Law enforcement is the biggest contributor to the Special Olympics, with more than $58 million raised last year for the organization.
