This year we Jump for Tugboat’s Dad. Let’s Eat!

Since the Jump’s beginning, one person stands alone as a tour de force in fundraising. He has single-handedly raised more donations than nearly all other jumpers combined. He’s achieved the coveted Top Dog title not once, not twice, not even thrice… four times.

That jumper’s name is Dan “Tugboat” McDonagh.

This year his father, Paddy McDonagh, needs our support as he battles lung cancer. So this is not an option, we need to rally around Tug and show this 3-time 4-time Top Dog Champ (2007, 2010, 2014, *2017) just how much we all appreciate what he has done over the years.

And when you see him don’t be shy to give him a big old hug. You will not regret the experience.
