It’s usually a “chilly” fundraising event, but with today’s high of 13°C, it may be a nice leisurely soak for 48 University of Manitoba students.

The Asper School of Business students will be “Chillin’ for Charity” to raise funds for the United Way of Winnipeg at 11 a.m.

Students will take turns plunging into a pool of icy water at the Quad, adjacent to the Administration Building on the U of M’s Fort Garry campus.

The students are members of “Team Toba,” the team competing in an undergraduate business student competition called Jeux de Commerce (JDC) West. Each year, JDC West teams across Western Canada host their own Chillin’ for Charity event.

The goal this year is to raise $20,000 for the United Way.
