Polar Bear Plunge 2019

Campus Recreation held it’s annual Polar Bear Plunge late February. The event was located at the outdoor pool at the Maverick Activities Center. The plunge was free and donations were accepted to raise money for the Special Olympics. Participants plunged into cold water and swam across the pool. After the plunge, towels were distributed. Everyone received a free t-shirt and hot chocolate to warm up. Unlike previous years, the weather was bearable. Allowing for participants to socialize outside after the jump. Next year’s Polar Bear Plunge will be held in February 2020. If you would like to participate in any special events Campus Recreation has to offer visit uta.edu/campusrec/events
