The 2014 Polar Plunge was a huge success! 232 brave souls jumped into our Campus Lake in front of a crowd of over 1,000 people for the fourth annual Polar Plunge last Saturday, February 22. This year, the event, sponsored by the American Marketing Association, raised $55,600 for Special Olympics Illinois.
Pictured above is College of Business Marketing Chair and AMA Faculty Advisor Dr. Cheryl Burke Jarvis, who was the individual with the highest total fundraising dollars of $2,750.
We are certainly proud of the SIU AMA, Dr. Jarvis, and all of our committed attendees from our campus and surrounding community!
