St. Paul Rodeo is proud to be a continued supporter of Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund (JCCF), as they continue to donate, at every performance, all tips at the Tack Room Saloon & Outpost and Beer Stands to "give a hand up" to rodeo athletes who are injured through their participation in rodeo. With the help of our fans, the St. Paul Rodeo's 2021 donation to JCCF was $23,230.64!
On July 3rd, we give special honor and thanks to these PRCA World Champions, top competitors, and those with a dream of rodeo fame. Rodeo is considered one of the most dangerous and difficult sports in the world; the rodeo athlete puts personal well-being on the line in each and every event. With no guaranteed salaries or injured reserve provisions in rodeo, these athletes are often left with no place to turn when faced with serious, sidelining injuries and the accompanying financial hardship. This is where the JCCF steps in providing much need-based assistance to those injured through their participation in the sport of rodeo until they are able to get back on the road and compete again.
