A Saddle Up trail ride and lunch, benefitting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital was held at Ranger Field in Lakeview Terrace on January 21, 2007. Area 7 (Corrals 10, 12. 20, 38, and 210) of Equestrian Trails, Inc. (ETI), in collaboration with the San Fernando Rangers and the Ranger Sidekicks sponsored this event and are very proud to have raised in excess of $5000 for a wonderful charity!

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas and based in Memphis, TN. St. Jude freely shares its discoveries wit scientific and medical communities around the world. No family ever pays for treatments not covered by their insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay.

The San Fernando Rangers and Area 7 of Equestrian Trails, Inc., worked together harmoniously to organize and manage this event. Special thanks to the band Team Honky Tonk for entertaining us at lunch. We are all thrilled that Mother Nature blessed us with great weather and that the Rangers. the Sidekicks, and the ETI members and friends who contributed were so generous with their support. More than 50 people participated in this event, including approximately 44 who rode the trail. As many of our "Saddle Up" supporters said, "We are so happy to have children who don't need the services of St Jude's Children's Hospital-we are happy to help those kids who aren't so lucky."

St. Jude is financially supported by ALSAC. its fundraising organization. For more information please visit www.stjude.org
