Rednecks with Paychecks kicks off

The third annual Rednecks with Paychecks runs through September 18 to September 21 in Saint Jo.

The event features vendors, live music and outdoor activities, such as rock climbing, chug-n-run relays, mud pits, racing and more.  Plus, there's a thousand acres of trails, hills and creek beds of dirt and rocks to ride around on.

A portion of the proceeds goes to eight nonprofit organizations.

Wayne Foster of media relations for Rednecks with Paychecks said, "It's very important to us to give back to the community. We firmly believe in that. From our vending area, we incorporate the Nocona I.S.D and Saint Jo I.S.D. They're vendors here and that helps them make money for their schools."
