The 29th annual Riding Against Child Abuse College Rodeo continues at noon today with the finals. The rodeo, which has about 150 college athletes from two- and four-year colleges in Washington, Oregon and northern Idaho, has raised more than $300,000 for child abuse prevention efforts in the Walla Walla Valley.

Attendance is $8 for adults and $5 for children and seniors. Rodeo profits are split between WWCC, the Walla Walla Exchange Club and the Walla Walla Council for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect.
