Special Olympics New Hampshire is excited to bring you a brand new approach to the Winni Dip in 2021, aimed to offer everything you love about the Dip, while encouraging you to participate safely wherever you are. You’ll still be able to get cold and earn bragging rights, compete for prizes like best costume and top fundraiser, earn incentives for the funds that you raise…and support more than 3,000 Special Olympics New Hampshire athletes across the granite state! SONH’s Mark Ericson joined Gino on the Magic Morning Show today and told us all about it. Listen and check out the details below!
Take the Dip on March 6th and 7th! You will receive a Dip Tank that contains everything you need for your DIY Dip: a party pack, snack pack, and any incentives that you’ve earned. Once you receive your Dip Tank, you are set to Dip however you’d like.
All Dippers must sign a waiver before Plunging, either online or paper form. Individuals under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian complete their waiver.
Get creative, this is your year to do it your way! Take video or photos of your Dip, add them to your fundraising page and be sure to tag #SONHDip on social media.

Remember, safety first!
Cold/freezing/frozen water presents obvious and not-so-obvious dangers and is risky at any depth to people of any age, mobility, or health status. You must exercise caution and personal responsibility in your DIY Dip activities. SONH cannot identify or control the risk of every DIY Dip activity and has not endorsed or approved as safe for any particular Dip activity.
Be smart, be safe and be careful in whatever form your DIY Dip takes you, follow applicable water (and freezing water) safety and COVID-19 protocols. Have fun with it, but most importantly, BE SAFE!
