The 4th Annual Crockettsville Charity Trailride hit the trails Sunday morning.

The charity event kicked off yesterday with a concert starring various country music singers.

More than 500 people drove in the 42-mile Crockettsville Charity Trailride in Breathitt County.

All proceeds go to the Buckhorn Children and Family Services Center.

"We wanted to do something for our community and something we could see where the money goes to. You can see the kids and see how it impacts their lives," said David Tolliver, Halfway to Hazard.

"We're giving music back. That's nothing! It's free. And so if we can give that back and lift up their spirits, then I'm in 100 percent," said Christian Kane, actor and singer.

Hosts from the country music duo Halfway to Hazard started the charity four years ago.

"It was an idea Chad and I had. We were sitting in our manager's office, and we said, 'Why don't we have a concert and ride ATVs?'" said Tolliver.

The riders made a pit-stop before hitting the trails.

The trail ride started with a stop by the center to see the kids, which is riders' favorite part of the event.

"It makes my day. It makes my year. And we have a parade that goes through the children's center and to see the kids out there with signs holding up. It just warms your heart," said Tolliver.

The 4th annual event brought nearly 10,000 people to Crockettsville over the weekend.

The Buckhorn Children's Center houses children and teenagers from broken homes who need a second chance.

The center has received over $400,000 from the charity event in the last three years.
