#InCaseYouMissedIt: PBR Bull Riders Take to the Sea to Give Back

By: Darci Miller

In a season full of firsts and unprecedented events, why not bring things to a close with another dose of history? PBR Air Force Reserve Cowboys for a Cause brought bull riding to the flight deck of an aircraft carrier, while riders made the 8-second whistle to raise $250,000 for charity. Miss a moment of the action this weekend? Here’s what happened around the PBR.

At the PBR Air Force Reserve Cowboys for a Cause…

Team Bad Boy Mowers took the win aboard the USS Lexington Museum as the PBR and its partners raised $250,000 for military charities.

Keyshawn Whitehorse headed to Corpus Christi fresh off the best performance of his career and ready to give back.

Operation Homefront, one of the charities that benefitted from Cowboys for a Cause, is a nonprofit whose mission is to build strong military families that can thrive in their communities.

Ezekiel Mitchell, a member of Team Wrangler, is no stranger to giving back to his community.

Following his PBR World Finals event win, Boudreaux Campbell finished off his season riding for something bigger than himself.

The USS Lexington, commissioned in 1943, saw active combat in World War II and served longer than any other Essex-class carrier in the world.

Derek Kolbaba put off his offseason for one more event so he could ride to benefit a great cause.

The PBR and the WCRA announced that, in 2021, Rodeo Corpus Christi will play host to the first stop of the $1 million Triple Crown of Rodeo.

Down under in PBR Australia…

Aaron Kleier went 3-for-5 at the PBR Australia Monster Energy Tour Grand Finals to win an unprecedented third consecutive PBR Australia title.

Kleier edged out Lachlan Richardson, who dominated the first two rounds of competition in Townsville.
