HAHIRA, GA (WALB) -

A rodeo will be held in Hahira this weekend for children battling childhood cancer.

Organizers spent much of Friday getting things ready for the rodeo on Saturday. 16 kids are expected to participate in the rodeo.

The rodeo starts at 2 p.m. at KB Horse Camp. The owner of KB Horse Camp said she looks forward to this event all year.

"We wanted to be Jesus' hands and feet and show all these families that we do care and we do love them a whole lot," explained Kim McGee, Owner of KB Horse Camp. "And," she continued " [we want to] bring awareness to gold and make gold as big as pink."

Gold is the official color of childhood cancer.

There will also be a small auction after the rodeo to raise money to help the children's families pay their children's medical bills.
