West Hollywood, CA, December 18, 2006 - An AIDS benefit horseback trail ride that raised more than $50,000 was awarded the Outstanding Community Event of the Year at the 6th Annual WeHo Awards Ceremony on Dec. 12.

More than 200 supporters and 75 riders participated in Saddle Up LA, a two-hour guided horseback trail ride on June 2 at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank, CA. Some of the riders withstood physical hardships to participate.

"The ride was an affirmation of the power of compassion and a demonstration that ordinary people can accomplish extraordinary things. Not only did it raise money and awareness, it raised people's spirits," said Ric Parish, Associate Director of The Life Group LA.

Saddle Up LA was organized by The Life Group LA, which educates, empowers and provides emotional support to people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.

"We must continue to educate the community and support those affected by HIV and AIDS. Being honored by the WeHo Awards proves that our community is listening," said Sunnie Rose, executive director of The Life Group LA.
