One of Saskatchewan's long-standing traditions was turned into a charity event Friday night in the southwest.
Twenty bulls hit the chutes in Lancer, with five riders surviving the eight-second count, but the evening put on by Caitlyn's Crusaders was all about raising money for the MS Society of Canada.
Caitlyn Stenberg, who was diagnosed with MS in 2018, succeed in her fundraising mission again, bringing in over $4,200.
"Every time I do one, I'm super nervous in the morning and by the end of it, I'm overwhelmed with joy," she said. "We have one of the highest rates, everyone kind of knows somebody or multiple people with it."
Stenberg has been around the rodeo grounds from a young age and began participating in them at nine. Last year she held her first-ever rodeo in Kyle with proceeds going towards the MS Society of Canada.
""Most of these guys are my friends, they're family almost," she said. "This is my way of giving back to them as opposed to asking for money, I kind of give them something to do."
According to Stenberg, the amount raised at the Kyle rodeo in the fall was very similar to Friday night.
