Saddle up for St. Jude!

Calizona Appaloosa Horse Club along with Lazy Faire Ranch in West Cajon Valley, California is co-sponsoring the 7th annual benefit trail ride for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on May 2, 2009. Riders of all ages and their horses or mules are invited to “Saddle Up” & participate.

Cancer is the leading disease killer of American children and St. Jude is the leading center for the study of these diseases. Approximately 4,000 children are currently being seen at St. Jude. St Jude covers all costs not covered by insurance. Families without insurance are never asked to pay. St. Jude is supported by public contributions. Monies raised from this event will build an endowment fund to ensure St. Jude’s continued efforts. Prior years’ events have risen over $2,500 and we’d like to raise more this year. Have fun – Help save lives and Saddle Up for St. Jude!

Calizona ApHC is soliciting donations from Appaloosa enthusiasts anywhere in the country. Funds do not just have to come from riders and participants in our local community. Any amount in a donation to support this important cause would be appreciated. Your donations win you prizes too! Donate $35.00 and receive a “Saddle Up for St. Jude’s” T-shirt & pin. Prize level donations of $75, $125, $175 are cumulative and in addition to the pin & T-shirt include a saddlepack, sweatshirt, and cap. Prize items are mailed to the donor approximately one month after the event.

For those that are interested, donations can be mailed to:
