University of Minnesota-Duluth Tekes Prepare for Polar Plunge

University of Minnesota-Duluth Tekes Prepare for Polar Plunge

Fraters from the Upsilon-Gamma chapter at the University of Minnesota-Duluth are preparing for a dip in Lake Superior this Saturday, Feb. 20, for the annual Polar Plunge. 

Last year, more than 1,000 students and community members took the plunge raising more than $160,000 for Special Olympics Minnesota. 

To participate in the plunge, each participant needs to raise at least $75. However, that hasn't been a problem for Tekes at the Upsilon-Gamma chapter.

WDIO-TV in Duluth first reported the story.

 

"This year we're excited because other organizations on campus are giving us some good competition right now," said Frater Jason Spanier. 

Spanier and Frater Dean Harris say one of their member's cousin is actually in Special Olympics Minnesota, so the event hits close to home for them. 

"This really just gives someone the opportunity, like our member's cousin, to go out there and actually fulfill his dreams to be in the Olympics which is amazing," Harris said. 

Those interested in supporting the cause can donate at the Polar Plunge website.
