WINNIPEG — Some chill-thirsty University of Manitoba students took the plunge into icy water on Thursday in the name of charity.
The annual “Chillin’ for Charity” fundraiser included 40 costumed business students supporting the United Way of Winnipeg.
The students, part of Team Toba, are competing in Jeux de Commerce (JDC) West. Each year, JDC West teams across Western Canada host their own Chillin’ for Charity event.
The event was expected to raise about $12,000 for the United Way.
