A woman is shown barrel racing at a previous American Pro Hero Rodeo event. This year’s event will be April 28-29 at the Columbia County Fairgrounds. Military and public safety workers receive a complimentary admission.
The second annual American Pro Hero Rodeo will be held April 28 and 29 and will benefit the Ronald McDonald House in Augusta.
The event is part of the International Professional Rodeo Association and will have eight standard events with contestants from the eastern half of the United States as well as Canada. The events include barrel racing, bulldoging, girls breakaway, calf roping, team roping, bullriding, saddle bronc riding and bareback riding.
David Speight, of the Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctors Hospital, as well as burn unit nurses and Dr. Mullins organize the rodeo each year to benefit the families who have to stay at the Ronald McDonald House in Augusta.
“Many people who come to the burn center come from far away, and they need a place to stay,” Speight said. “We have rooms at the Ronald McDonald House, and the money from the rodeo helps the families who need them.”
