About the event
The Skyline Ranches Cross Country Run is a cross country run/walk on the beautiful, private horse trails of the Skyline Ranches neighborhood just south of Elkhorn NE. This run has had many changes over the years, but some things have stayed the same... including the original mission in 2012 to raise money and awareness for the Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy (HETRA) - www.hetra.org and St. Augustine Kids program - www.sainta.net.
Since 2012 there have been 850+ participants who have helped raise over $16,000 for the two organizations.
The 6th annual Skyline Ranches Cross Country Run (new name, same awesome event) is now officially a G.O.A.Tz run!
