Wow what a crazy few months it's been! We are so thankful to have so much continued support and prayers! We wanted to provide you all with a brief update on Ride-A-Thon:

IMG_9456.jpgIMG_9497-007438-edited.jpgThis year we held our 19th annual Ride-A-Thon. Leading into the week before Ride-A-Thon there was uncertainty if we were going to be able to operate it from Willow Creek. We continued to pray and look toward God for providing the necessary needs to proceed with our fundraiser. Three days before the schedule start of Ride-A-Thon, the Lord answered our prayers and the forest closure was lifted.

It was a great weekend of fellowship and beautiful weather for riding in mountains. We had a chance to hear from staff testimonies from the summer, an update from one of our Board members Kent Lien and to see how much our community raised for Blue Bronna. For our 19th annual Ride-A-Thon, we raised a total of $25,356. Wilene Pronk took home the top prize saddle with $4450.

Our Ride-A-Thon fundraiser continues to be a large financial support for our ministry and we could not operate without this support. Thank you to all of you who came out to support and ride for this ministry. Special thanks to Frontier Western Shop for donating the prize saddle.
