Polar Plunge 2 Polar Plunge 3HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 24, 2014 –High Point University students recently took an icy dip for a good cause. Sunday 25 students, including members of the Interfraternity Council (IFC), Greek community and student body participated in the IFC’s annual Polar Plunge 3K race, raising funds for the Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation.

“The Polar Plunge is a great way to bring members of the student body together to raise awareness and money for a cause that needs it,” says Tyler Rost, HPU’s IFC vice president of philanthropy. “It doesn’t matter what organization the participants belong to, just that they’re helping out in a big way.”

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 plunge, the IFC hosted a cook-out and T-shirt sale to help continue to raise funds for the foundation.
