Each year the parents of approximately 15,300 kids will hear the words “your child has cancer.”
In 2016 the Golden Circle of Champions formed in conjunction with the Santa Maria Elks Rodeo to raise awareness, as well as funds, to help children and their families who are battling life threatening pediatric cancer and other illnesses. It has partnered with the Red Bluff Round-Up, along with the Las Vegas Events, the PRCA, and Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation to sponsor 10 families chosen from PRCA-sponsored rodeo across the nation. These families will attend and be honored at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
Each Golden Circle of Champion child and their family will be treated to a “Champion” style banquet, where they will dine with NFR rodeo champions, receive special gifts, and learn about rodeo. Following the banquet they will be whisked away to a magical night at the Wrangler NFR.
