Professional skateboarders even supported the spectacular new segment for Special Olympics this year… Many ran and jumped into their very first plunge with our team… Professional bike riders were flying higher than ever…

And we just want to say… Thank YOU.

More About our History with Special Olympics…

What is it Like? Watch This Video!

The Very First $10,000 Donation Jump was in 2018!

Thank you all for your contributions and for being a part of this exciting brand new concept supporting Special Olympics. A Grand Total of $10,459 has been Donated to Special Olympics Thanks to YOU!

This is by far one of the most challenging things we’ve ever pursued… From logistically bringing the idea to reality 4 years later with Special Olympics, Property Owners & Zorbaz, Insurance, Local Law Enforcement & Cutting Ice… Then reaching for the moon and building our $10k Fundraiser Team within 4 weeks… Right up until the final seconds cranking thru non-ridable melting snow on carpet…

WE DID IT. #TEAM10K.

You are all going on our wall. Every single name. Your generosity truly hit us deep down with this one. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart -Ride MN and Factory 24 Hour Hobby Facility Founder Dustin Grice.
