Chillin’ for Charity

November 7, 2017 — 

Over 40 costumed students from the University of Manitoba’s Asper School of Business will jump into ice cold water on Thursday, Nov. 9, for the annual “Chillin’ for Charity” event, which raises funds for the United Way of Winnipeg.

The students are members of “Team Toba”, the Asper School of Business 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.

Team Toba expects to raise around $12,000 for the United Way of Winnipeg thanks to the help of many sponsors, including Royal Bank of Canada which donated roughly $4,500. You can make a donation to the United Way of Winnipeg by supporting Team Toba.

This fun event is hosted by Hot 100.5 FM.

What: Chilin’ for Charity
When: Thursday, Nov. 9, from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Where: Opening ceremonies will be held in the Drake Centre, then students will parade in costume to the Duckworth Quad, on the south side of the Administration building, where they will jump into icy water.
