Take a leap at the Jackalope Jump to raise money for Special Olympics

Fundraising isn’t always for the faint-hearted. Each winter brings the opportunity for the bravest among us to leap into the icy waters of Keyhole Reservoir and raise money for Special Olympics Wyoming.

Save the date for this year’s icy leap: the Jackalope Jump will be taking place at the marina at Keyhole State Park on March 26, with registration beginning at 11 a.m. and the jump beginning an hour later.

Funds raised by the shivering swimmers will go towards the estimated 1600 Special Olympics athletes in this state through program costs including team uniforms, meals and sports equipment.
