The fourth annual Biking for Backpacks was a huge success. Thanks to our Pocatello community and faithful riders we were able to raise almost $4,000. That is enough to provide 18 children right here in our community with backpacks for an entire school year.
Thank you to the avid riders in our community who love to help a great cause while they energize themselves with exercise.
A big thank-you goes out to Stephanie Whitworth and Laura Smith from Idaho Central Credit Union. They stepped up as the lead volunteers for this event and did an amazing job to help us make this a success.
A special thank-you also to Miss Hunter Rackham, the 2013 National High School Rodeo Queen. Hunter took time from her very busy schedule to share her passion for what she does and sign autographs. She is an amazing young woman.
We are also very grateful to the sponsors that helped us make this possible.
