If you have ever dreamt of living and working like a cowboy now is your chance, while at the same time supporting the fight against heart disease.
Heart charity Croí is looking for men and women to participate in its annual week-long Cowboy Challenge at a real life working cattle ranch in Denver, Colorado, USA in May (1 to 9 ) and September (19 to 25 ) 2010.
You will be instructed by professional cowboys. Don’t expect a leisurely holiday — you will be up at the crack of dawn feeding the horses and preparing for the day, which could include day-long cattle drives, roping steers from horseback, or mending fences, but at the end of an immensely satisfying day you can look forward to a good meal, a cold beer, and a chance to exchange stories with your fellow cowboys and cowgals!
All funds raised will support Croí’s heart disease prevention programme — identifying young people at risk of heart disease and teaching them how to reduce their risk and live a longer, healthier, life.
Places on the challenge are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis. Telephone Sarah-Jane on 091 544 331, e-mail [email protected], or visit www.croi.ie for further details on the Croí Cowboy Charity Challenge.
