What is the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund?

Each year the St. Paul Rodeo hosts PRCA World Champions, top competitors, and those with a dream of rodeo fame. Considered one of the most dangerous and difficult sports in the world, the rodeo athlete puts his 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 Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund steps in! The JCCF provides 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. For more information about JCCF see http://www.justincowboycrisisfund.org.
