Tickled pink: Freezin' For a Reason raises $15K for Kinship
Perham Minnesota 222 2nd Avenue SE 56573

It was literally a screaming-good Saturday for Perham’s Kinship program as more than 75 community members took a mid-winter dip in Little Pine Lake.

For the fifth year in a row, people from the Perham area stepped up to the edge of the ice to take a chilly plunge for a good cause.

The day’s events collected more than $15,000 for Perham’s Kinship program, according to director Jill Shipman.

“Attendance was actually up, which was surprising because of the cold,” said Shipman.

Twenty-three teams ended up in the water this year.

The youngest jumper of the day was 10-year-old Brodie Cariveau, who made the plunge with his dad, Ross, and uncle, Mitch Bratteli.
