On January 12th, 2013 supporters of Haiti Outreach took a leap into the chilly waters at Fish Lake Park in Maple Grove as part of our 4th Annual Deep Freeze Dunk! From brave people in just bathing suits to those decked out in actual suits, it was great to see how much fun everyone had with the event. Thank you to all who participated – whether you were a Dunker, a Chicken Dipper or one of the generous donors to a friend’s fundraiser!
We raised a grand total of $18,757.45!
All money raised from the Dunk will be used to further the Haiti Outreach mission of providing sustainable, community-managed water and sanitation facilities to rural Haitians.
You can see photos and videos from the Dunk at these sites:
- CCG Creative took professional quality photos at the event. The photos are now posted on their website. They are available for purchase with all proceeds going to Haiti Outreach.
- Our Deep Freeze Dunk FaceBook page has photos as well! (Be sure to ‘like’ the page too)
