Jackalope Jumps



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.

Jumps usually begin in early February, there will be 15 Jackalope Jumps across Wyoming.  Jumpers must raise the minimum amount ($100) to earn the privilege of taking the plunge.(If joining as a team of 5 or more -  need to raise funds of at least $50 per person) 

Jumpers raising additional funds earn extra incentives along the way.  

Events like the Jackalope Jumps help support over 1,800 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.
