The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo has teamed with Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Fort Worth Affiliate to host a breast cancer awareness
day for the fifth consecutive year on January 25. Rodeo contestants, fans, rodeo clowns and breast cancer survivors will be decked out in pink to raise awareness of the deadly disease, according to North Texas e-News
"We are proud to partner with the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo once again in this amazing fundraising effort and celebration of survivors," said Ann Greenhill, executive director of Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Fort Worth.
The rodeo will host breast cancer survivors and their families with a Pink Ribbon
Roundup Reception sponsored by the Cancer Treatment Centers of America. The survivors will also be treated to a free ticket to the rodeo and will be able to meet the contestants.
Half of the proceeds from general admission ticket sales will go to the charity. Last year, the rodeo raised $12,347.67 for Komen Greater Fort Worth.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the largest breast cancer organization in the world with over $1.5 billion donated since 1982, according to their web site.
