The JCCF lends a helping hand to professional rodeo athletes and their families in the event of catastrophic injuries. The fund provides temporary financial support when the injury interferes with those who have dedicated their lives to the sport.
Sweethearts of the West is very passionate about the JCCF. We strive to support and bring awareness throughout the year to this dedicated and amazing organization.
Sweethearts of the West embraces the western way of life through actions and deeds; promoting the sport of rodeo; and participating in community events throughout the year. We are a 100% volunteer group contributing over 2,000 volunteer hours each year towards rodeos and charity events across the state.
