St. Jude Barrels Of Hope

Cancelled Due To Rain

3rd Missouri Barrels of Hope Fundraiser barrel race Benefiting St. Jude produced by Michelle Hamilton.


Presenting the third Missouri St. Jude Barrel Jam, now known as the Missouri St. Jude Barrels of Hope Fundraiser. Come out to The Johnson County Fairgrounds Arena in Warrensburg, MO for a barrel race benefiting the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food - because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.


In 2018 the Missouri Barrel Jam produced by Michelle Hamilton raised $40,788 for St. Jude. Our goal is to raise $100,000 or more in 2022.


The online fundraising is the largest part of this event! Be sure you read below how to register to help us reach our goal of raising $100,000 for St. Jude.
