RENO RODEO ASSOCIATION DONATES MORE THAN $9,000 TO JUSTIN COWBOY CRISIS FUND
RENO, Nev. (April 1, 2019) – At the monthly membership dinner on March 22, the Reno Rodeo Association presented a check to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund for $9,071.03.
The association raised the funds thanks to the Reno Rodeo Bowling Tournament held January 19. This is the second year the association has held the fundraiser.
The Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund (JCCF) was created by the Justin Boot Company in partnership with the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) in order to lend a helping hand to professional rodeo athletes and their families in the event of serious injuries resulting from professional rodeo activities and fills the void of financial hardship when the inevitable serious injury interferes with the careers of those who have dedicated their lives to the sport.
