I think St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is one of the best resources we have in the fight against childhood diseases.

"Horse Ride For St. Jude," is happening this Saturday (8/25) at the Adams County Fairgrounds near Mendon.

The Horse Ride takes place from 10am until 5 pm, and features horses and ponies that you and your family can ride. There will be plenty of other things happening too - food, live music and entertainment, face painting and a bake sale and silent auction.

All proceeds will go directly to St. Jude in Memphis.

Admission is $5 per person with children under four, admitted free.  Kids can ride horses multiple times during the day.

A big thanks to the volunteers (and horses) for making this event possible.
