Chillin' For Charity is an annual event hosted by all competing JDC West teams to fundraise money for their charity of choice. The Event is a Polar Bear dip that entails students jumping into an ice-cold pool of water to raise awareness and funds for charity. The Alberta JDC West team partners with the United Way to donate money to the charity's incredible initiatives. Last year alone we raised more than $12,000 in support for the United Way. This year our goal is to fundraise $15,000. This event is popular all over campus, routinely drawing large crowds of students, faculty, and corporates to watch and take a plunge for a good cause. Hope to see you there!
When: Wednesday, October 8, from 11:00am to 3:00pm
Where: Main Quad, University of Alberta
