Breakfast for WSoB Polar Plunge Teams by Carly Miller

Ready to start Freezin’ for a Reason?

On February 19th, the Wisconsin School of Business will be taking the plunge – the Polar Plunge that is – at Olin Turville Park in Madison. The Polar Plunge is one of the biggest fundraising efforts of the Special Olympics of Wisconsin to raise funds for their events, while honoring this good ‘ol Wisconsin tradition.

The BBA Gov has partnered with several student organizations within the Wisconsin School of Business  to participate in the Polar Plunge. All participants registered with affiliated WSoB teams will be invited to the Grainger Café from 9:00-10:30 the morning of the Plunge for breakfast and prize giveaways. Then a bus will arrive at 11:00AM at the Union to take participants to Olin Turville Park for the Polar Plunge.
