Journey for a Cure Rides Across North Dakota



Cowboy Up Journey For A Cure is a 16-day, 373-mile trail ride across the state of North Dakota to raise money for the fight against cancer. Bruce and Carol Van Den Einde and Scott Olerud will be riding their horses from the Minnesota border to the Montana border.

“This ride is a great opportunity for us to realize a dream we’ve had for many years and to raise money for the fight against cancer,” said Bruce Van Den Einde.

The ride will have 16 overnight stops along the way, with fundraising events planned at most locations. Local riders, either individual or groups, are welcome to join at any of the towns along the way. For those that want to show support but cannot ride, they can do so by attending any of the events or by becoming a sponsor. “Everyone has been effected by cancer through their own personal journey or through a loved one’s journey,” said Carol Van Den Einde. “This ride will honor those who have survived, lost the fight or are currently fighting cancer.”

All donations benefit the Roger Maris Cancer Center in Fargo, ND.
