Dozens of brave University of Manitoba business students will take a chilly plunge into icy water today.

It’s all in support of the United Way as more than 40 students don costumes and jump into a pool on the U of M’s Fort Garry campus.

Teams have set a fundraising goal of $18,000 this year, in addition to the support of donations from charity partner RBC.

The Asper School of Business students are representing “Team Toba” JDC West.

The chilly jump will run from 11 a.m. to noon at the outdoor quad south of the Administration Building.
