    A trail ride and family fun day will help raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. HK Farm of Cobbtown is partnering with Glennville’s Strickland Farm to host a “Saddle Up” event to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
    The trail ride and family fun day will be held Saturday, June 4 at HK Farm in Cobbtown.
    “The purpose for this event is to raise money for children who are battling catastrophic diseases,” said Handy Kennedy. “In addition to the trail rides, there will be a family fun day with several games for all ages to enjoy.”
    Activities include fishing, horse shoes, volleyball, fun  jumps for kids, and board games.
    “We invite you to join us to make this a community initiative and to help in the fight against cancer, AIDS, sickle cell and other childhood diseases,” he said.
    Discoveries made at St. Jude have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. It is the place where many doctors send some of their most ill patients and toughest cases. At St. Jude, cutting-edge research and revolutionary discoveries happen every day.
    Most importantly, all patients are treated without regard to the family's ability to pay.
    Gates open at 6:30 a.m., with the first ride out at 8:30. a.m. and other rides later in the day.
