Stirling Family Memorial Ranch Rodeo
Two BIG days!
Saturday, Sept. 14 and
Sunday, Sept. 15, 2019
The Stirling Family Memorial Ranch Rodeo was originally started as the Dick Stirling Memorial Team Penning in October 1998 as a memorial to our father who had lost his courageous battle with cancer one year prior. Dad was a lifetime SD rancher, rodeo supporter, community member, and incredible family man to eight children. It was our desire to not only honor Dad's incredible memory; but also, his love of family and rodeo events through the creation of a fun-filled day to work hard and play hard; as well as, raise funds to support other families that were experiencing the need to be cancer warriors. The Team Penning evolved into a Ranch Rodeo that brings time-honored ranching traditions to town for a day of exciting events - Calf Branding, Range Doctoring, Trailer Relay Race and Ranch Bronc Riding plus action packed family chore time. More than 300 families have benefited from funds raised through this amazing day of ranching traditions. We have changed the name to Stirling Family Memorial Ranch Rodeo in recognition of the many family members that have lost their fight and to ensure the focus remains on families and those that are struggling with the horrible disease --- cancer. The funds raised by this event go directly to families that are in the midst of the battle to assist with anything they have a need for whether it be gas money for trips to the doctor, a special family outing, Christmas gifts, or whatever the need may be... We just want to give a little while cancer can take so much!
Our event has grown to two exciting days!

“I would like to thank you and whoever recommended me for the honor. I think it is a great thing you do to honor the memory of your loved one……I was really surprised and overwhelmed to receive this gift. As you know, a cancer diagnosis comes with more expenses than just medical bills." ---SFMRR Donation Recipient
