If you were walking around the Scarth Street Plaza over the noon hour on Wednesday, you probably saw people in a dunk tank on perhaps coldest day we’ve seen since before summer.
Students from the University of Regina’s Hill JDC West Team were taking the icy plunge in the name of charity.
Money was being raised for a local charity called Hope’s Home.
Student, Jacob Nelson said Hope’s Home benefits medically disabled children in the province.
“So we raise money and awareness for them so that we can hold programs, help Hope’s Home run programs, and just try to give those kids a good normal life that they all want,” Nelson said.
He added they are aimming to raise 15-thousand dollars for Hope’s Home with the Chillin’ for Charity event alone, and 60-thousand in total.
Hope’s Home also has locations in Saskatoon and Prince Albert.
