Hundreds of student athletes made their way down to Pearly Pond on April 24th for the first ever ‘Polar Plunge’ which involves students jumping into the lake for charity.

Despite the event not being at its usual time of the year in January when the campus usually is frozen over, the event still went forward in a nice 70 degree weather.

This event was organized by the Student Athletic Advisory Committee Reps of the university and was all in the name of the ‘Make a Wish’ foundation charity.

One of the organizers of the event, Hamish Cadigan, a junior on the soccer team, said, “Every year this event draws in all the student athletes not only because it’s fun jumping in the lake but because it brings student athletes of all sports here at Franklin Pierce together.”

Freshman Jeffrey Reddy, who is on the Cross Country/Track and Field team, also participated. ” I came to the event because it was a really warm day today and it was a good way to cool off after practice, not to mention it being all in the name of a fantastic charity so I know the money made here today will go towards a good cause,” said Reddy.
