Help Jared represent Israel at the 2026 Olympics!

Tax deductible
Shalom! My name is Jared Firestone - Israel's World Cup skeleton athlete and 7x medalist in the North America Cup - currently ranked 24th in the World.

This means I'm in a strong position to represent Israel in the 2026 Winter Olympics in Milan.

But in order to get there, I need your help.

Qualifying for the Olympics requires a lot of hard work. And it's very expensive. Funding is directly correlated to performance. Your help will lead to stronger results for Team Israel.

It has always been my life’s ambition to find a sport and take myself to the pinnacle of its success. When I discovered Skeleton, I was instantly hooked. And when the possibility of joining the Israel National Team was presented to me, everything clicked into place. My lifelong dream of being an Olympic athlete could actually come true, and I would be doing it for the nation of Israel - it doesn’t get any better!

Making myself, my family, and my nation proud on an international stage is a huge achievement, but my greatest privilege is serving as a global ambassador to inspire and unite Jewish people around the world.

Every time I step onto a track in my team Israel uniform, I serve as a reminder that Israel exists and it’s a nation that, when pushed, only slides more swiftly into victory.

Now, more than ever, we urgently need positive Jewish representation. This is how I've dedicated myself to answering that call. But, I can’t make this dream a reality without your support.

Qualifying for the Olympics requires hard work, dedication, and money. A lot of money. Right now, I need funding for critical training and race opportunities this season.

As with everything - we are stronger together. Please support my mission for Milan. Every dollar counts! Help me bring Am Yisrael to the Olympics and I promise I will make us proud!

Funds go towards:
Coaching, Training Runs, Race Entry Fees, Flights, Accommodation, Overweight Baggage Fees, Car Rentals, Physiotherapy, and Equipment Upgrades.

While these expenses add up, any amount helps. For example, $18 can cover a race entry fee, $36 for a training run, $72 for a physiotherapy session, $108 for a day of sliding coaching, $180 to travel with my sled on a flight, or $360 for the flight itself. For $720 I can make upgrades to my equipment, like purchasing new runners for my sled, $1,080 for a month of car rentals, or $1,800 for a month of accommodations.

For corporate sponsorships to help cover larger portions of my expenses, please reach out directly! Here are some additional materials which explain those opportunities in more detail:



I'm raising through the US-based non-profit Advancing Jewish Athletics, whose mission is to support athletes who display elite performance in their sport, as well as positive Jewish and Israel ambassadorship while doing so.
