New York, NY ( - Saddle Up 4 Good (SU4G), an organization founded by urban cowboys, Dr. Ray Charles Lockamy and Mr. Morris, will host its first annual Saddle Up 4 Good "Spur Into Action" Inspirational Showdeo, June 18-21 at Gloucester Dream Park in South Logan Township, New Jersey. The traditional rodeo, has been transformed into a Showdeo, and will feature an IPRA sanctioned rodeo, a Polo demonstration, barrel racing, bull riding, livestock auction, western line dance, gospel performance and Sadie Hawkins dance, all to raise funds for area charities aimed at improving the lives of children.

"Our primary goal is to provide education, motivation and skill building for young men and women in an effort to teach them personal responsibility and accountability," said Dr. Lockamy. "Our ultimate goal is to motivate young men and women to make decisions about their goals and values, and act in ways that support their decisions," he added.

The Showdeo will open Thursday with a Competitive Rodeo, with over $5,000 in prize Money at stake, and close on Sunday with a Father's Day Gospel Performance by a national act. "We wanted to connect with today's youth to educate them about the contributions of the Black cowboy, empower and teach them the life skills that will help them improve their communities," said Raymond Lewis, president of RPL Consulting and SU4G producer. "We are very excited about the line-up and the support we have received from the corporate and rodeo community," Lewis added.

Saddle Up 4 Good began on July 1, 2008 with a benefit ride by Morris and Lockamy from Portland, Maine to Jacksonville, Florida. The ride concluded on August 16th with over $50,000 pledged to help fund Doorways for Woman and Families, a shelter that aids victims of domestic violence. At the conclusion of the 1,641 mile trek, the duo decided to expand their focus and raise money and awareness for cancer research, at-risk youth and AIDS Awareness.
