Rope for a Cure hopes to knock out childhood diabetes

Posted: Updated:
Amarillo, TX - Cattle wasn't the only thing on the minds of roping and riding cowboys this weekend.

The Range Rider's Rope for a Cure is raising money to help find a cure for kids with type one diabetes.

Doctors say around 500 kids in our area have the disease, which is why event organizers say this weekend's fundraiser is so important.

The Rope for a Cure will be happening in Amarillo at the Range Rider Indoor Arena through Sunday.

Money raised will be used to help send those kids to camp, and will also be donated to help find a cure.
