Edmonton Rodeo Cowboy's Benevolent Foundation

RiderThe Edmonton Rodeo Cowboy’s Benevolent Foundation provides maintenance assistance to rodeo athletes who have been seriously injured participating in these sporting events. To that end, the fund has given out over $500,000 CDN in aid since its creation.

Northlands Park first earmarked fund money in 1989, creating the current foundation six years later, to answer a need in the rodeo world for the financial protection of professionals and their families. Through fundraisers like the Black Tie Bingo and 50/50 raffle, both of which are held during the Canadian Finals Rodeo, the foundation has continued to see support for its cause.
