Published DateLACONIA — Sunday March 10 is Dip Day in Laconia. That is when Special Olympics New
Hampshire (SONH) holds its third winter water sport fundraiser of the season, the Winni Dip, at the Margate.
Members of New Hampshire's Law Enforcement community, local high school students, faculty and staff and other brave individuals will go for a "dip" in Lake Winnipesaukee. The Winni Dip is part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run, a year round partnership between the agency and the state's public safety officials that raises funds and awareness for the athletes of SONH.
Mark Ericson and Karen Kiley of WOKQ's Morning Waking Crew will be the Masters of Ceremonies for the
Winni Dip again this year. A few notable members of the law enforcement community will participate:
• Attorney General Mike Delaney, 4th Year Dipper
• Dick Tracy, Criminal Investigator, Office of the Attorney General
• Chief Doug Moorhead from Woodsville, the Winni Dip's top fundraiser
"The partnership between Special Olympics and New Hampshire's Law Enforcement is a great one, the
members of LETR help us throughout the year by raising funds and awareness for our organization, they
also help at many of our events by handing out medals to our athletes, and participating in ceremonies at
SONH competitions," said Mary Conroy, SONH President. Conroy went on to say, "The partnership simply
makes Special Olympics better."
Sunday's schedule starts with Dipper check-in from 9-11 a.m., with a "Cops & Robbers" Costume Parade
at 11 a.m. and the first wave of dippers enter the water at noon.
All dippers enjoy the Post-Dip Lunch & Celebration and will receive an event pull-over or hoodie.
