Saddle Up for St. Jude

Posted: Updated:

Today a huge group of people and their horses ride through Fort Lincoln south of Mandan to raise money for children.

This is the 4th annual Saddle Up for Saint Jude event.

Priscilla and Jason Sauer and their whole family help put this event together every year to raise money for the Saint Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Today about 80 horses and even more riders came out to enjoy the ride and donate to the cause.

In the past 3 years combined, they have collected almost $15,000 for the Saint Jude hospital.

This year, Priscilla wanted to match that..

Today they raised nearly $10,000 and that's not including all of the online donations.

Every dollar will go towards helping kids.

"Oh my gosh, I love kids. I've been doing daycare for 19 years. I have 4 daughters of my own. I love horses and I love to organize so it all just fell together and with some help of my husband and some very good friends they got me started. This is our 4th time doing it," Priscilla Sauer said.

"I help my wife out all the time, you know. I think it's a team effort. You know we all have kids and I think it's something that as a family we should be stickin together.. helping out," Jason Sauer said.

Priscilla says they will definitely be doing it next year so you can mark your calendars for the last Sunday in July.

They are also still accepting donations until September.
