Special Olympics Wyoming
In Support of Special Olympics Wyoming
Special Olympics is founded on the belief that people with intellectual disabilities can, with proper instruction & encouragement, learn, enjoy & benefit from participation in individual & team sports, adapted as necessary to meet the needs of those with intellectual & physical limitations. Special Olympics believes that consistent training is indispensable to the development of an individual’s sports skills. In addition, competition among those of equal abilities is the most appropriate means of testing these skills, measuring progress, and providing incentives for personal growth.
The Legendary Jackalope Jump!
Some may know the legend of the Jackalope, but few have ever seen one! This horned jackrabbit has evaded many a hunter and continues to remain a mysterious creature roaming the plains of Wyoming.
Wyoming is the one and only location on the planet to hold an annual Jackalope Jump, also known as Polar Plunge events in other parts of the country.  
Jumpers create awareness and raise funds to support Special Olympics WY by participating in a cold water plunge fundraising event.  
This statewide event runs from February through March each year. Awards to recognize the best costume, largest group, and most funds raised are given out with a chance to earn some cool Special Olympics gear!

We are a team of individuals that love our community and our country. We all love and support Special Olympics locally and State wide. This year we are excited to once again take the freezing cold plunge to help raise funds for an organization so close to our hearts. The Jackalope Jump—sometimes held in conjunction with the Law Enforcement Torch Run— is a huge fundraising effort benefiting Special Olympics and the athletes. In order to participate, individuals or teams collect pledges from friends, family, and colleagues to lock in their spot!

Team Jared


Our jumping is for Jared to go to state bowling and for him to do his best since he works at big dogs lanes. We have the motivation for this because Jared works hard and tries his best at everything and we like bowling with him. Jared has became a part of this big dog lane family and we treat him like he's one of us and it gives him more confidence. No matter what happens he will be a part of the family forever. -Heaven,Emilio,Becky,Jared
