Cruisin’ Jackson event raises money for Rein-Bow Riding Academy
MADISON COUNTY, Tenn.–A special event was held Saturday to help further the work of a local organization.
Folks ‘cruised on by’ for the ‘Cruisin’ Jackson’ event held at the Jackson Dragway in east Madison County.
The all-day car show included races, car shootouts and exhibitions to raise funds for the local ‘Rein-Bow Riding Academy’.
The academy helps individuals with varying medical issues including cerebral palsy, impaired coordination, traumatic brain injuries, or stroke victims to receive innovative therapy while riding a horse.
“Cruisin’ Jackson’ is for people that cruised the streets of Jackson in the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. And we just thought it was an idea to come together as a group and of getting back together,” said organizer A.D. Sanford.
Organizers say they hope to have more fundraisers like this in the future.
