The 63rd annual Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo will soon stampede into Colorado Springs. The proceeds will be donated to local programs that serve military families.
With an estimated 15,000 military personnel deployed from Fort Carson, the needs of local families are greater now than in year's past. NORTHCOM commander General Ed Eberhart says the rodeo and the military both have something in common---they represent Old Glory. "There's nothing more American than rodeo. It ranks right up there with apple pie. It doesn't rank with mom, but it ranks with apple pie," says Gen. Eberhart.
The Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo is set for August 6th through the 10th.
