Weekdays 10a-3p

Saturday Morning. Come alone, bring the family, and/or call some friends. I promise you will have some fun at the Beautiful Fort Desoto Park Ride & Run with Pinellas Sheriffs. I started doing this ride in 2016 with Pinellas Sheriffs. Amazing event helping crime victims, children, and families through the holidays. Yep. It’s BIG, REAL BIG! And, a fun way to start your holiday season of GIVING ; ) .

In their 38th year these heroes have have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations to meet the needs of thousands of Pinellas County children during the holidays! Ride And Run With The Stars is the largest law enforcement-organized holiday charity fundraiser in the Tampa Bay Area.

Fun and safe walk, ride, and run in beautiful Fort Desoto Park for all fitness levels. Great silent auction. Always great sports stuff, and Christmas gifts! You’ll enjoy great food & fun, great people, see some exciting K9 demonstrations, and SANTA and MRS CLAUSE arrive by chopper.  Hope you can join us! More info below. See you there!

I trust dogs and horses, love country music, and country fried chicken. Fought many men, and loved only 1 woman. She's from Nashville, so the accent. Life is short. Make somebody smile, Dog-gonnit. Haaaaaa.
