Not all jobs come with hazards such as getting flipped, thrown in the air or run over. But when it’s bull riding, that’s par for the course. And that’s where Dr. Jeff Williams comes in.
Dr. Jeff is a chiropractor in Chubbuck, Idaho, and he volunteers his time to provide care for cowboys free of charge before, during and after a rodeo.
“I think his biggest joy comes from being able to help those people who normally wouldn’t let other people help them,” said Dr. Jeff’s wife, Heidi.
Dr. Jeff comes from a unique place; he rode bulls in high school, so he understands how the riders feel, which provides a comfort factor and trust. “Let me show you how to fix that…that’s what I didn’t have,” he explained.
For Dr. Jeff’s good deeds, the Built Ford Tough® “Good Works” program wanted to shine the spotlight on him. “Good Works” recognizes unsung heroes who use their Ford trucks to help their community. A series of “Good Works” videos has been made to bring awareness to the selfless work of many. Professional Bull Riding (PBR) personality Brendon Clark hosts the “Good Works” series; despite his PBR background, know that “Good Works” is not focused only on bull riding. The series has highlighted a Hurricane Sandy fundraiser, a veteran, a food pantry volunteer and a volunteer firefighter.
Be sure to enter the Built Ford Tough® Good Works Sweepstakes. Ford is working with the Professional Bull Riders to give away a 2014 F-150 and a $25,000 donation to charity. You can learn how to enter here. An F-150 with EcoBoost® and a VIP trip for two to the Built Ford Tough Series PBR World Finals seems like a win for you, but it’s a win for charity as well. And you can also donate to the Rider Relief Fund, an organization that supports bull riders that have sustained serious injuries, or to the charity of your choice.
