Non-Profit Makes Outdoor Adventure Possible

Posted: Updated:

An organization made an outdoor adventure possible for one Billings girl.

Erin's Hope Project was started by a couple who lost their daughter to a brain tumor. They decided to create a non-profit to provide outdoor activities for other kids who suffer from illnesses.

"Our daughter loved the outdoors, so we just decided that we wanted to do outdoor adventures for kids with cancer or life threatening illnesses. Just to get them outside and enjoy the outdoors with their families, to make memories and special times, and just hanging out with their family," said Pam Hurr, Vice President of Erin's Hope Project

10-year-old Shelby Hayworth was diagnosed with leukemia about a year and a half ago. She decided to go horseback riding at Bittercreek Outfitters with her family and friend. The organization surprised her with a limo ride to the trail. After the ride the limo took them to lunch.
