Cool Sleds for the Hottest Thing On Ice

The Jamaica Bobsleigh and Skeleton team continues to inspire persons around the world to achieve much more than their environment would suggest. Rooted firmly in the values of excellence and adventure of the original Cool Runnings team, current athletes continue to do exceptionally well in this still unlikely sport for Jamaica.

We qualified a skeleton athlete and our first women’s team for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games. Since then, we have used the Pandemic as a springboard and not as an obstacle to our success.

Last season we had historic medal finishes in the Monobob event, and our men’s team returned to the World Cup circuit and to the marquee 4-man event after an absence of many years.

We now look to the future, and to the XXIV Olympic Winter Games to be held in Beijing, China, in February 2022. Our athletes are among the best in the world. They are as committed, hardworking, resilient, and talented as any, but without elite sleds they can never reach their potential. We don’t want to be drag racing in a Prius.

This is where you come in.

Elite bobsleighs are expensive, very expensive. A 4-man off-the-shelf can cost $140,000 and it doesn’t even have an engine. But this is what we need to win, and we want you to help us to do so by contributing by way of paying for two (2) MonoBobs, and one (1) 4-man bobsleigh. Like true Olympians, we have set a stretch target of US$194,000. The overall budget is below.



Your contribution will be made to the Jamaica Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation Foundation a registered 501(c )3 corporation in the state of Florida. The sleds will belong to the Jamaica Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation Foundation and be assigned to the Jamaica Bobsleigh Team athletes based on ranking and team objectives.

Please help us finish the race, but this time on the runners and in the sled.

Contribute NOW and share this with others.
