The Jamaican Bobsled Does It Up Cool Runnings Style And Qualifies For Sochi Olympics! Help Them Raise Money!

olympic bobsled team needs money

Did you hear about the Jamaican bobsled team qualifying for the Sochi Olympics? It's like Cool Runnings 2, but in real life and amazing!

The only problem is, they're struggling to get there to compete!

Luckily, Olympic organizers offered to pay for their travel costs, but they STILL need money for equipment! It's been 12 years since they've been able to compete — so the internet is stepping in!

They estimated they needed $80,000 but that included the cost of travel, and we're aware that Reddit and something called Dogecoin (an alternative to Bitcoin, that's meme based) have raised $25k!

We don't know if that means if they'll actually be able to use it, but it's a GREAT start!

Sorry, Lolo Jones! We hope they DO get to go!
