Students from the University of Manitoba’s Asper School of Business braved chilly temperatures to raise funds for the United Way on Tuesday.

Dressed up in costumes, students jumped into an ice-old pool near the administration building as part of the annual “Chillin’ for Charity” event.

The shivering fundraiser is tied to the JDC West business competition focusing on humanitarian leadership, which has been fundraising for charity since 2006.
