4th Annual Winni Dip

Laconia, New Hampshire

Denis Petit's Page

I will be dipping into Lake Winnepausakee on Sunday, April 1st to benefit the Special Olympics of NH. I will be the sole dipper for the Laconia Lakers at this event. The Laconia Lakers is a Special Olympics team comprised of 6 athletes. Every year the team participates in all of the games, including the Winter Games, Summer Games, Bowling, and Swimming. A portion of the donations (15 %) raised by me will go straight to the Laconia Lakers team. The remaining amount will benefit the Special Olympics of NH. So your donations will stay local!

Last year, I dipped on March 6th, the lake water temperature was recorded at 30-something degrees F! To keep an eye on the lake temperature, visit The site is updated regularly.

The first person that donates $500 gets to tell me what to wear. Last year it was a speedo...... oh boy!

Last year I was the highest fundraiser and raised $3582.69. I'd like to beat it this year.
