A Home For Pam
A NEW HOME FOR MISS PAM!

Pamila Cronkhite founded Son Rise Ranch over 25 years ago as a way to help troubled youth through horsemanship.  She worked with probation officers and lawyers to encourage at risk youth to participate in her program.  When friends asked for their children to take lessons, she opened her program to all who were interested.

Since 1994, “Miss Pam” has dedicated all of her time & energy to youth development, as well as caring for the 15 horses and various barn animals on her 16 acres.  Beyond  riding skills and Horse Science, she is passionate about teaching the valuable life skills of team-building, camaraderie, having an outstanding work ethic, and self-confidence.  In addition to year-round lessons, she holds camps, participates in fairs and parades, and runs other field trips and special events with her students.

Due to an auto- immune disease, Pamila has been confined to a wheelchair. She works tirelessly everyday to keep Son Rise Ranch going and now she needs our help.

Miss Pam needs a new home. The floors are caving in from the wheelchair and the roof is leaking. We hope to raise $60,000 towards making a new home possible.  ( Any additional funds will be used to upgrade the ranch to make it wheelchair accessible.)

If Pam has impacted you or your family in any way, we hope you will consider blessing her by making a donation.  Thank you for your kindnesses.

This past month Pam's sister held a run to benefit Pam's Ranch. The following information was received from her. Together we can do this.
Welcome to the 1st Annual Cowboy Classic Rodeo Run, a Wild West Experience to benefit Miss Pam’s ranch.
Bringing the spirit of the Wild West in a healthy way, we are fundraising for wheelchair accessible home on her ranch. Miss Pam has effected, changed, and influenced thousands of lives through her livestock and lessons. Pam is doing so from a wheelchair. It takes tenacity and a 24/7 commitment to caring for livestock. Ranching is hard and expensive, equipment needing constant repairs, livestock needing constant feeding. Add in the challenge of doing so from a wheelchair and I see a warrior in my sister.
People weren’t sure what to expect out of a Rodeo Run. I had this vision to take the main thing I do ...run and put on running events and let them experience the heritage of our cowboys and ranch life that opened up the West.
We tailored the finisher medals to be belt buckles. We rented mechanical bulls for everybody to test ride. We had stick horse dashes. A live, country western band, gunslingers from
A gun fighting club, and live horses and real deal cowboys from the Roy Rogers Ranch.
We will be bringing this Rodeo Run to Camas County and hope that YOU will be a big part in making Pam’s Ranch continue and giving her the wheelchair accessibility to make that possible .
From the 1st Annual Rodeo Run we were able to purchase heavy duty wheelchair batteries ... two sets. And get a $40,000 chair donated. The Rodeo Run will pay the $600 needed in batteries and the shipping cost for that heavy duty chair. Our next step is to tear down the existing mobile home and lay out the foundation for a future home. The Rodeo Runs are launched in hope of making this project Gofundme A home for Miss Pam’s ranch visible. Help me, as her sister; help the kids and families from
The ranch raises the needed funds and get this home built that is tailored for the needs of a wheelchair.
Back in the day, the entire community came out to build a barn. Help us make this a community effort to build her “barn”.
Racing through life and toward this goal. It can’t be done without YOUR donations.
