The UConn chapter of Sigma Chi fraternity will be hosting a polar plunge this Saturday at Husky Village to benefit the Chris O’Brien Determination fund.
Chris O’Brien, a close friend of one of the Sigma Chi brothers, is a member of the swim team at College of Charleston who was paralyzed from the waist down in a diving accident last year.
With this event, Sigma Chi seeks to raise money to fund Chris’s trip to the Shepherd Rehabilitation Center in Atlanta. The plunge will take place in a rented pool, with water provided by the Storrs Fire Department. The fire department, with Sigma Chi, will be in attendance at the event, which features sorority members competing in events leading up to the plunge. There will be giveaways and prizes for the winners and all attendees. Sigma Chi welcomes everyone on campus to come take a plunge for Chris’ cause.
