Express Clydesdales raising money for a cause


For ten years, Elkhart County Fair officials have tried to get the Express Clyesdales to visit during fair week. This year they were successful and fair goers get to meet the animals that weight thousands of pounds.

These huge horses came from Oklahoma to help raise funds with Express Employment Professionals for Memorial Children Hospital. "They're kind of revamping everything and not a lot of people know about Memorial Children's Hospital South Bend, they've been going down to Riley and we want to let people know that there is a great pediatric hospital right here in our own backyard so we really want to bring attention to that," says Lindsay Hipshier with Express Employment Professionals in Mishawaka and Elkhart.

For two bucks you can get a picture with the Clydesdales or buy a raffle ticket to ride in the wagon behind six of these big guys at the grandstand.

The Clydesdales will also make an appearance at the SilverHawks game Thursday at 6:15.
