Documentation Pathways Sponsors 2006 18th Annual Pony Express Ride to Benefit Three Valley Children's Charities
Goodyear, AZ (PRWEB) June 17, 2006
“In the early morning mist of April 3rd, 1860, in St. Joseph, Missouri, a young rider swung up into the saddle, sank spur and headed out on the first leg of a long and perilous journey with the U. S. Mail that covered 1,966 miles. Some ten and one half days and dozens of riders later, that same U. S. Mail arrived in Sacramento, California giving birth to the solely American Western heritage, the Pony Express.”
The children’s smiles, health, well being, and determination are what spur these local cowboys on to fare the July heat and rough conditions. This horseback rider relay starts at the Horses Help parking lot at 5:45am on June 29th and ends at the Prescott Rodeo Grounds the next day. The total miles covered will be 163 miles over two days with each of the 67 riders going a distance of 2 miles prior to handing off the mail to the next in line. Channel 3 will be providing coverage at the kickoff event on June 29th.
Proceeds from the sponsorships will be going to Horses Help, Tim & Willy Kids Fun-Dation, and Give a Child a Smile Foundation. This is the major event of the year for the Phoenix JC Comancheros in which they are “keeping the kids in our sites at all times.” To find out more about the event or become a sponsor, visit www. officialponyexpress. com.
