What an amazing time for all the kids, staff, families and volunteers to come out to our new property and celebrate another successful year at the WHY Ranch.
Prior to the rodeo, everyone gathered around in a circle to pray for the property for the first time, it felt like a family! Diane Holmes, our new trainer arranged for the kids to participate in 3 different stations. One was barrel racing, the second was branding the steer and the third was calf roping with a hula hoop. Diane handed out 3 belt buckles to the top 3 winners at the end of the rodeo. It was a great bonding time for all the families and kids involved. At the end, each child was handed a completion certificate for either being a Diamond or a mentor in the program for the 2013/2014 year.
We are so blessed to have so many children and families a part of the WHY Ranch family and have already seen the signifcant transformation in those kids that recently joined us at the beginning of the 2013 year. Our program and events like this can ONLY take place by those generous donations that YOU feel led to give. As long as we have money for our program, we can take in more children who need that boost of confidence to get them through their daily life of struggle. Our dream is that any boy or girl that enters our program can have a place to call home and feel safe at our ranch.
