The Rutting Ridge Foundation has selected it’s next recipient for receiving an Action Track Chair. This will be Rutting Ridge Foundation’s 5th chair to give away and 5th deer hunt to Rutting Ridge Outfitter’s in Buffalo County Wisconsin. The board has selected Sid Dailey from Independence Wisconsin, as their first round pick for 2020.
Sid, a 15 year-old high school junior from Independence, Wisconsin has faced adversity head-on his whole life. Born with several health ailments (the most prominent being spina bifida.) Sid has learned how to “roll with the punches” and adapt best as he can to situations presented to him. His “dream big” mentality has given him the mindset that just about anything is possible if you have enough determination, drive and support.
Sid’s big heart to others touched the lives of many people in the area. Jason Hovell, Agricultural Science Instructor and FFA Advisor at Independence High School said, “You would be hard-pressed to find another student in Wisconsin of this age that has been so giving of their time to help others through local and state level 4-H and FFA activities, along with his family signing up to serve those who are worse off than they are. I commend Sid’s parents for showing their children this “living to serve” mentality, as this is what I feel is an important link missed in parenting children today.”
Sid currently uses several different styles of crutches, walkers, mobility scooters, and wheelchairs, and was quick to notice that these mobility devices all have their limitations and boundaries, especially where the blacktop ends and surfaces like grass, soil, sand and even gravel have limited Sid’s mobility to enjoy the outdoors with family and peers. This is why Rutting Ridge Foundation is excited to announce and become part of Sid Daily’s life experiences.
Rutting Ridge Outfitter’s in Buffalo County Wisconsin is donating a 3 day hunt. Choices of hunts include- Archery, Rifle, or Muzzleloader with lodging and meals included. All donations received will be donated to Sid Dailey and his action track chair fund. For every $10 donated, you will have a chance to win this hunt. (e.g. $100 gets you 10 chances) The drawing will be done live on Facebook once we hit our goal of $18,000 or March 21st on Sids birthday.
