Trail riders will Saddle Up for St. Jude at an event on Saturday, September 26, 2015. The event gives horse lovers the opportunity to raise funds to help support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, one of the world’s premier pediatric cancer research centers.
The ride begins at 2:00 p.m. at the Posey Hollow Horsecamp located at 243 Polk 306. Riders will enjoy a 4 hour guided ride followed by a bonfire and hot dog/marshmallow roast. Participant forms are available at Polk County Farmers, Mena Feed, Ouachita Equine Clinic, the Polk County Extension Office and Country Express. Participants can also register online at: http://fundraising.stjude.org/polkcounty St. Jude provides prizes for individuals who raise funds. In addition, those who raise the most funds will win locally donated items and all participants will be eligible for door prizes.
Since opening in 1962, St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and around the world. No child is ever denied treatment because of a family’s inability to pay. With a daily operating cost of $1.7 million, St. Jude depends mostly on public contributions and fundraising events like Saddle Up for St. Jude.
