#Activate10: Jackalope Jump fundraiser returns to Lander, Riverton in March

“Our community is large and wildly diverse, which is at the same time our strength and our weakness. #Activate10 is a movement seeking to increase communication between individuals and organizations across Fremont County and to promote positive action in our communities.”

(Fremont County, WY) – The infamous freezing cold plunge, a.k.a the Jackalope Jump, to benefit Special Olympics athletes is happening in Riverton on March 19th and Lander on March 26th.

After a year hiatus due to the pandemic, the brave should be ready for the challenge of “Freezin’ for a Reason.”

The Riverton Jackalope Jump is happening in the City Hall parking lot at 11 am on the 19th. Click here to register a team or learn more about the jump.

Right now, all that we have confirmed is the date for the Lander jump. Location, time and online page have not been confirmed yet. However, once they are, County 10 will share the updated info. It’s not too early to start getting your team together.

The Jackalope Jump concept is simple: participants raise money to benefit Special Olympics Wyoming athletes, then face freezing cold water! 

They, however, are so much more than that! They’re the kind of fun and inspiring events that you really have to experience to understand. Each jump is its own personalized event as they are planned and organized locally by SOWY volunteers. 

All Jumpers that raise a minimum of $100 will receive a Jackalope Jump T-Shirt and blanket. Participants that raise $750 will also get an embroidered fleece jacket. Grab some friends, plan some fun costumes, get pumped and register today at SOWY.org!
