The Edmonton First Responders Rodeo Association is a newly formed association hosting an amateur rodeo and recreational events for first responders and their families that promotes positive community interaction and raises funds for select charity's.
Mission: The Edmonton First Responders Rodeo Association (EFRRA) is a Society that plans to achieve following objectives: - Host an annual amateur rodeo/recreational event for first responders and their families that promotes positive community interaction, - To function as a not for profit entity that raises funds for The Zebra Child Protection Centre for Child Protection and Legacy Place Society, mental health support for First Responders, and - Promote and preserve the western lifestyle and heritage that rodeo represents. The annual EFRRA rodeo competition presents a unique opportunity for members of the First Responder community to interact with other first responders from all over the province and the public on a personal level. It is also an excellent opportunity to promote inter-agency competition and build relationships through friendly competition while working together to raise funds for two charitable benefactors. The charitable benefactors are the Zebra Child Protection Centre for Child Protection and Legacy Place Society, an organization that provides mental health support to First Responders. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Zebra Child Protection Centre and Legacy Place Society.
