TKE brothers hold polar bear swim

February 19, 2013


TKE Polar Bear Swim 2013

Our Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) brothers jumped into frigid Lake St. Francis on February 15, for their 7th annual Polar Bear Swim.

Through the swim, the brothers tried to raise money and awareness for Saint Jude Children's Research Hospital, founded by Danny Thomas, a TKE alumnus. All TKE chapters have pledged to raise at least one million dollars in the next five years for St. Jude Hospital. The proceeds will aid in the addition of a wing to the hospital. The group will sold t-shirts for $10.00 each and wristbands for $3.00 each during the swim. All money collected went directly to St. Jude's. The TKE brothers made news with this swim last year in their national TKE Magazine.
