After weeks of helping distract and entertain people during the COVID-19 pandemic, the “Jump Around Wisconsin” movement held its last official statewide gathering. Saturday, May 23rd at 3:00 PM, radio stations around the state broadcast the final “Jump Around Wisconsin” event as part of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Founders Greg Thomson and Joe Lahti decided with the lifting of the “Safer at Home” order and many parts of the state easing restrictions, it was a good time for the event to end. On top of helping create a movement that stretched all over the state, the group also helped raise $5,500 for local charities.
The Facebook group that helped spur the movement will remain active with the hope people will continue sharing uplifting and motivating messages for members to enjoy.
