The legendary Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo will host this breast cancer awareness day for the fifth consecutive year. Rodeo contestants, fans and breast cancer survivors will all wear pink in an effort to raise awareness of the disease.
Breast cancer survivors will be treated to a Pink Ribbon Roundup Reception, sponsored by Cancer Treatment Centers of America, from Noon–7 p.m. in the Amon G. Carter Cactus Room. In addition, survivors will receive a free ticket to the evening’s 7:30 p.m. rodeo performance. At the reception, breast cancer survivors and their families will enjoy refreshments, meet rodeo contestants and receive a special gift.
Through the partnership with the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo, Susan G. Komen will receive 50 percent of the proceeds from the general admission and rodeo ticket sales on Jan. 25. Last year, the Stock Show raised $12,347.67 for Komen Greater Fort Worth.
“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. “We are so grateful to organizations like the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. It is because of individuals and organizations like the Stock Show that we are able to raise awareness and continue the fight against this deadly disease.”
