Sheriff’s Posse rounding up for annual St. Jude ride
Sept. 18, 2013 — Saddle up your horses and come help the Lassen County Sheriff Posse achieve its goal of raising $5,000 to help fight pediatric cancer and other diseases.
This year’s event will be held Saturday, Sept. 21 at Susanville Ranch Park off dirt Paiute Lane. Signups begin at 9 a.m. Prizes and lunch will also be provided.
The LCSP is a nonprofit corporation that hosts equestrian events in Lassen County and the money raised through its efforts are used for scholarships and given back to the community. The Saddle Up for St. Jude fundraiser is the only non-horse program to which the LCSP donates.
St. Jude is one of the premier pediatric cancer research centers and the only organization where no family ever pays for anything.
Since its 1962 inception, St. Jude’s protocols have helped increase the overall survival rate for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent to 80 percent. It has treated children from all 50 states and around the world. The daily operation cost for St. Jude is $1.7 million, which is primarily covered by public contributions.
