Jackalope Jumps

Time to go FREEZIN” for a REASON!!

Below Zero Hero 2018


 BE A BELOW ZERO HERO!  The Jackalope Jump is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations and businesses to raise much needed funds for Special Olympics Wyoming athletes at the local, area, and state level by taking an icy dip into freezing waters.

Beginning February, there will be up to 16 Jackalope Jumps across Wyoming.  Jumpers must raise the minimum amount ($100) to earn the privilege of taking the plunge.  Jumpers can raise additional funds and earn extra incentives along the way.  (If joining as a team of 5 or more -  need to raise funds of at least $50 per person)

Events like the Jackalope Jumps help support over 1,700 Special Olympics Wyoming athletes. 

The Jackalope Jump is a wild, fun, crazy fundraising event and a great way to show your community support.  Friends, neighbors and co-workers form teams across the state and participate in at least one of the jumps.  

Time is now to get a team together.  It is truely an amazing way to bond with co workers, friends and family.  It has been said that the crazy costumes keep you warm!!  We appreciate the amazing support for these events this year and look forward to seeing you at the jump.
