Saturday, April 17th, the Cheyenne Jackalope Jump fundraiser is happening in Lions Park! The event will benefit Special Olympics Wyoming athletes throughout the entire state.

In recent years, the Jackalope Jump challenges Wyomingites to bravely take a jump into freezing waters around the state. The funds raised for the event have gone towards supporting about 1,800 athletes across the state of Wyoming. Participants, whether it's individuals, organizations or businesses will raise money for Special Olympics Wyoming athletes and then take on the challenge of facing freezing cold water.

At the Jackalope Jump , you can dunk, soak, dip, or splash in the cold water to help raise funds to support Special Olympics Wyoming. Each jump is organized by Special Olympics Wyoming volunteers. You can register for the event today at SOWY.org. Not to mention, all jumpers raising a minimum of $100 get a free Jackalope Jump t-shirt and towel. You can't go wrong with getting some swag at an event that's intended for a great cause.

Wyoming’s Cheapest Places to Live

Do you like money? Do you like not like spending it? Well then my friend, I have an internet list for you. Or friends at Homesnacks crunched a bunch of numbers to find the cheapest places in Wyoming to live.

The Homesnacks folks looked at US Census data and the cost of living for the area. "We were especially interested in home and rental prices in places with more than 1,000 residents," they say.

If you like small town living in the natural beauty of the wilds of Wyoming, you'll find plenty of ideas on this list.
