Horseback Ride -a-thon
June 6, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 7:00 pm| Free
Hope Mission 2015 Horseback Ride-a-thon Saturday June 6th at Brightwood Ranch one hour west of Edmonton off Hwy 16 near Evansburg, Alberta.
Brightwood Ranch, a part of Hope Mission, is a camp primarily for underprivileged kids – mostly kids from single parent, foster and group homes.
The Ride-A-Thon gives children a chance to come to a week long camp, have fun, be kids, and receive extra support and love.
The campers are asked to pay a small fee to come to camp, if they can, but many families are not able to pay the $300 that it costs.
The funds that you raise in this Ride-A-Thon helps these kids come to camp.
– register for the ride or donate on line go to www.hopemission.com/summercamp
Once you are registered, we will send you donation forms and info.
Minimum donation to participate is $50.
Grand Prizes – a one year old 1/4 horse filly and a saddle.
Ride your horse or ours. There is no age limit but those under 15 need to be accompanied by an adult.
You can camp at our ranch, stay in one of our cabins; all three meals of the day are provided, there are over 100 riders, usually around 100 prizes and we ride on a 13,000 acre grazing reserve.
If you would be willing to put up posters for the ride in your area, please let us know and we will send you some. This will be our 9th Ride-A-Thon and have raised close to $250,000 – that has sent 1,000 underprivileged kids to camp over the years.
