Hudson police raise big money for Special Olympics
The annual Winni Dip in Laconia benefits the Special Olympics of New Hampshire. This year the fundraiser took in a huge haul thanks to a number of law enforcement agencies, including the Hudson Police Department.
Out of the 18 teams that participated in this year's Winni Dip, the Hudson Police Department raised more than $6,400 for the Special Olympics. In the last two years, the Hudson Police Department has raised more than $12,000. Hudson police also raised the most amount per member topping out at $740 per person on the team. Kevin Riley raised the most with a $1,000 haul.
The annual Winni Dip was held March 14 in Laconia. Each year participants take the icy plunge into Lake Winnipesaukee braving the roughly 33 degree water.
Overall among law enforcement agencies and other supporters more than $69,000 was raised for the Special Olympics.
