Polar Plunge with the Special Olympics

On February 17, 2018, Wisconsin MBA students and faculty dove into Lake Monona to help raise money for Special Olympics Wisconsin. With about 80 participants total, the Wisconsin MBA Team is one of the largest Polar Plunge teams in all of Madison. This year’s team came in 4th place after raising $14,200. The Polar Plunge has become an annual tradition for Wisconsin MBA students. Each year, the different centers compete to see who can raise the most money, get the most participants, and have the best costume. Marketing Research came in first place for most fundraised for the second year in a row. Risk Management was a close second and had 100% participation in their center. The Wisconsin MBA program is committed to giving back to the community and looks forward to carrying on this fundraising tradition again next year.
