The Rodeo Kids Program came about when Founder, Jackie Harris, first started her journey with Dreaming of Three.  When her Step Father first was diagnosed with Cancer, given 12-18 months to live, Christmas was right around the corner.  She wanted to give him a night out without worry as his Christmas gift, to forget all the treatments, Dr. visits, and everything that was going on that revolved around the illness and to just give her mother and step father an evening out, full of smiles and laughter and making memories.    So she decided to get her mother and Step Father tickets to a Broadway show and dinner at Ruth Chris!  That night, the smiles on their faces, they seemed to forget all and her mother still talks about that evening today.

 

She was watching the National Finals Rodeo, and there were alot of St. Jude Children's Hospital commercials.  She had already decided what she'd do in 2012, to donate her winnings.  But the idea of giving "experiences", "memories", to these kids, touched her heart. Why not find some families perhaps going through the same tough times, but the unthinkable, with a child.  She wanted to be able to reach out on a more personal level, to take families to a rodeo, to show them the sport she loved so much.  She would get the producers of the rodoe involved, the contestants, Rodeo Queens, Companies,Team DO3 members, followers, the entire Community who wanted to reach out to say "We care" to the families, and to show the family and child the best time ever!  A night without worry!  A night showered with gifts!  A night to be a King or Queen of the Rodeo!  A Super Star!   A night where our followers, friends and family can put a face to why they ride every weekend, or through the week donating to the charities, to bring a personal touch of their own for these kids. We all have a little Superman, ready to take flight!  It's an opportunity to come together, to make a very special night for a very special child and their family.  

 

Companies and individuals can send in a gift or another special outting for the family, signed cards or messages of encouragement.

Levi Lynch

Hunter  Presgrave, Rodeo Kid #7 .

Katie Montgomery

Levi Lynch is 5yrs old (DOB 6/21/16) and lives in Calcutta, OH. He lives with his mom, dad, his sister Penelope and cousin Nick. He loves fishing, dinosaurs and cars. In February 2022 he developed a cough that progressively worsened in a short period of time which prompted a phone call to his doctor and visit. The doctor asked he be taken to get a chest X-ray for possible pneumonia. His parents received a phone call about an hour later asking him to be taken to Akron Children’s ER for a CT scan. His parents took him and they repeated a chest X-ray and labs were done that showed a mass in his left lung. He was then transported by ambulance to Akron Children’s in Akron where he was a direct admit to the oncology unit. The next day on February 9th Levi was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Levi is getting aggressive chemotherapy currently. He is looking at a 3year total treatment plan.
