Over $8,800 raised at Riverton Jackalope Jump

    (Riverton, WY) – Temps hovered around 15 degrees with a slight breeze, making it feel even cooler Saturday morning for the annual Special Olympics Jackalope Jump held at Riverton City Hall.

    Awards are as follows: Jazmine Wildcat is the individual who raised the most money; Lewis Fancher is the athlete who raised the most money; the FC Allstars raised the most money as a group and were also the largest group; the best costume went to Blast from the ’80s; and Riverton Mayor Tim Hancock received a special award for being a last-minute supporter and jumper.
