Press Release:
Buck for the Fallen Rebrand

 To all our fans, followers and especially our sponsors,

We regretfully must inform you that we are having to change our name and logo. The reason for this decision is that a former board member is relentless in his pursuit of ruining our reputation by using the Buck for the Fallen name for his own events of which we are not a part of. Instead of continuing this battle, we as a board decided to rebrand and now will be using the name Responder Relief Rodeo working under the Responder Relief Foundation a 501 (c)(3) entity. We feel that this new name better reflects what this organization represents and wants to accomplish going forward as it does not just place us in a position of a rough stock event only format. We feel that we can encompass a variety of events that will allow us to better help all our first responders. Please feel free to contact us at 303-500-5275 if you have any questions. Again, thank you for your support for our mission.

Law Enforcement Liason



Our Mission started in February of 2016 when three deputies, of the Park County Sheriff’s Office, were wounded after being involved in a shooting.  One deputy sustained non-life threatening wounds, one was critically wounded, and one tragically succumbed to his wounds.  Responder Relief Foundation began to work diligently to help raise funds to provide monetary aid and community support for Colorado’s police officers, fire fighters, and Emergency Medical Services that are critically or fatally injured while serving our communities. Responder Relief Foundation is proud to say that 100% of its profits go towards our Colorado Heros.
