An invitation to run with me for my birthday and for ranchers

Anyone who has followed my blog knows that I am a Montana cowgirl.  I was blessed to grow up in the most beautiful places in the world on a ranch.  I worked for my Dad while growing up cutting hay, building and repairing fences, working cattle in the heat, the cold and everything in between.  Ranching can be a hard business.  It is a 365 day a year job and some times of the year it is a 24 hour job with calving and getting crops harvested.  It is also at the mercy of the weather and what Mother Nature throws at us.

The blizzard that devastated over 6,000 ranching families in South Dakota left me wanting to do something to help.  This is a short video that summarizes the damage from the storm and what they are going through.

and a longer but more throrough video, really explains a lot about the disaster and what the ranchers are facing. If you have the time I really recommend the second video.

Coincidentally my birthday is at the end of this month so I am going to do a virtual run for my birthday to attempt to raise money for the South Dakota Ranchers Relief Fund
