2022 Virtual JJ

If you don’t feel comfortable attending an in-person Jackalope Jump, the Virtual Jackalope Jump is perfect for you. The rules are simple: Get cold, be safe and don’t forget to document it!

You can take the Virtual Jump whenever and however you like! Creativity is key. Whether you’re dipping into an ice-cold bath or adding a bucket of ice water to your favorite TikTok dance, the opportunities are endless! Make sure to take a photo or video and share your Virtual Jackalope Jump on your social media (tag #VirtualJJ so we can find it!) to show how you’re supporting Special Olympics Wyoming. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

If you’re participating in the Virtual Jackalope Jump, your incentives will be mailed to the address entered during registration. Please make sure that the address on your account is where you would like incentives to arrive at the end of the Jump season.

Here are some ideas to help you get started!

  • Add a bucket of ice water to your favorite TikTok dance
  • Take the Jump (dip) into a bathtub full of ice water
  • Take a kiddie pool Jump in your back yard
  • Freeze your beard or hair
  • Dump an iced beverage from your favorite coffee shop on your head
  • Swimsuit snow angels
  • Winter water balloon popped overhead

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!
