Interfraternity Council Hosts ‘Polar Plunge’ to Raise Cancer Awareness

Posted on January 23, 2013.

HPU Polar Plunge 2013 1HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 22, 2013 – More than 50 students at High Point University recently took an icy dip for a good cause. With temperatures in the 40s, members of the Interfraternity Council (IFC), Greek community and student body were all participants in the IFC’s annual Polar Plunge 3K race, which raised $1,300 for the Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation.

“We opened this event to the entire campus to help raise awareness,” says Brandon Browning, a senior at High Point University. “We feel that the event was a success in that regard and was a fun event for the whole student body.”

The fundraiser included a 3-kilometer run around campus that ended with participants jumping in the Greek Village pool. Runners were responsible for raising their own money to participate in this chilly event. Following the event, the IFC hosted a cook-out and T-shirt sale to help continue to raise funds for the foundation.
