The Uintah Basin Back Country Horsemen annual Children’s Justice Center benefit was a success last weekend. Over 70 people participated in this year’s charity event held at the Lake Mountain trailhead on Mosby Mountain and according to organization board member Gale Robbins, the annual ride has raised well over $100,000 dollars in total donations over the 13 years of the event. The Back Country Horsemen organized their first charity ride to benefit the family of Roosevelt Police Chief Cecil Gurr who was killed in the line of duty in 2001. The Gurr family asked that the proceeds of the event be donated to the Children’s Justice Centers in the Uintah Basin in Chief Gurr’s honor who was vital in the formulation of the Centers in the Basin. The area’s Children’s Justice Centers operate on limited federal funding administered through the State and events like the Back Country Horsemen charity ride go a long ways in helping fund services to local children during difficult times.
