NBCRightNow.com - A local non-profit could soon be seeing themselves on a nationally broadcasted commercial.

It started with an “aha” moment. Mutual of Omaha offers a contest where they record people's groundbreaking or inspirational moments.

Ann-Erica Whitemarsh, the founder of Rascal Rodeo described one instance of how people are helped by her group. They put on rodeos for people with special needs.

She says the smiles they see on their faces are amazing. In her aha moment she described how one caretaker for a participant was brought to tears watching how fun the rodeo was for the special needs athletes.

"Rascal Rodeo can tell it's own story. If they looked at any of the photographs from any of the events, they can tell that it's something special and that it's changing people's lives, including myself," said Whitemarsh.

The rodeo recently won a free truck in another national competition. To help the non-profit you can vote every day. Just go to this link, click on Ann-Erica's video (the one with the rodeo hat) and click the vote button: http://www.ahamoment.com/
