Country legend Garth Brooks and the Professional Bull Riders Inc (PBR) have announced a new partnership to benefit charity.
The singer launched Teammates for Kids 11 years ago to contribute financial resources to selected non-profit organizations that effectively serve and benefit children with an emphasis on health, education and inner city services, and the new partnership will see PBR raise $1 million for the charity in 2010.
“Having the cowboys of the Professional Bull Riders as our teammates could not make me happier,” said Brooks. “They’re premiere athletes and I am grateful for their decision to use their gifts to benefit the kids.”
“Teammates for Kids is a Foundation that truly makes an impact with the money it raises to benefits kids,” added PBR CEO Randy Bernard. “We’ve challenged our riders and our fans to help raise $1 million dollars in 2010 for the Foundation and I know that our guys and fans are up to the task.”
The Foundation enlists the participation of professional baseball, hockey, and football players who contribute a predetermined sum based upon selected categories of on-field and on-ice performance.
