Since 1996, Believe In Tomorrow children and families have had the opportunity of a lifetime to meet real-life cowboys from the Professional Bull Riders, Inc. (PBR) through the Hands On Bull Riding Adventures program. As PBR tours its way through cities around the country, critically ill children and their families get to kick up their heels and watch the world’s top-ranked cowboys tough it out for eight seconds on the back of bucking bulls.
Children and families receive behind the scenes tours of the chutes, getting up close and personal with both the bulls and the riders to learn all the ins and outs of bull riding. Children come away from the tours with autographs on their t-shirts and photographs with their favorite cowboys. Children are invited to leave ‘good luck’ painted hand prints on riders’ vests and chaps. Following the tour, children and families view the event from VIP seating and cheer on their favorite cowboys while they face the eight-second challenge of a lifetime.
We are thrilled to have 10 professional riders during the 2016 season that will host our children during PBR events, give backstage tours, visit children in the hospital, and wear Believe In Tomorrow bandanas and patches while riding!
