A Day at the Rodeo for Breast Cancer Research!
On Friday October 27, the Classic Ladies Foundation hosted the annual Tough Enough to Wear Pink Day at the Warwick Rodeo and Gold Cup Campdraft in Warwick, Southeast Queensland, raising vital funds for research into the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.
We’re so excited to share the passionate team raised an amazing $20,856 for breast cancer research through ABCR!
the With all competitors and spectators making a small donation to wear pink, the Classic Ladies Foundation also raised vital funds through designing and selling caps featuring the ABCR logo, hosting a raffle and auctioning five elite Campdraft stallion service fees.
Toni Hart from the Classic Ladies Foundation said they are overwhelmed by the generosity of the Rodeo and Campdraft community who have been incredibly supportive of their bid to raise funds and awareness.
“The cause is very important to us, with everyone having some connection to breast cancer,” Toni said.
“Many people involved in campdrafting have in some way been directly affected by breast cancer. As friends and family of survivors, we all understand and appreciate the importance of scientific research and the hope it brings. For example, ABCR’s support of research into hormonal breast cancer treatments will result in help for so many women in campdrafting who are enduring ongoing preventative treatment like tamoxifen,” Toni said.
“A future without breast cancer will mean that we can live without fear in our lives. It will enable people to look forward to the future, and the fun and exciting times ahead with our families and friends at many campdrafts to come!”
