Angel Riders Drill Team is a group of riders ranging in ages from 12-73 that ride to help educate
and spread awareness for Angel Wings Network. Angel Wings Network is a 501c3 non-profit cancer

More About Us
The riders live from Midvale to New Meadows and practice twice a week in Council. They put a lot of miles on their vehicles to practice and perform at parades and rodeos for this very worthy cause. Each rider represents a different cancer and carries a flag representing that cancer color, for example: pink for breast cancer, teal for ovarian cancer, and light blue for prostate cancer. Each rider selects the cancer she wants to represent. Most have a personal connection to the cancer she rides for.
As a support network for individuals and families going through cancer Angel Wings provides transportation, fuel and meal cards, prayer blankets, weekly outreach at SAMC/Ontario Cancer Center, education awareness program, and telephone support. Angel Wings covers a 70-mile radius serving Western Idaho and Eastern Oregon. All support services are free of charge and funded by individual donors, some foundation grants, and local fund-raisers.
Our mission is to help change the lives of
people going through cancer and their families in our rural communities. As riders we make the communities aware that Angel Wings Network provides assistance and support in their rural area.
