Polar Plunge 2019

What is the Polar Plunge?

The Polar Plunge is an annual fundraising event to help support the Special Olympics. This year, Manchester University will be participating with a team consisting of students, faculty, staff, and alumni. As a university that values the infinite worth of every individual and putting forth service, this is an opportunity to connect with a non-profit that believes in the same values and ideas. This is a great way to support the local community while having a blast!

Join our team and commit to raise up to $50.00 for Special Olympics!
