Most of us have had a friend or family member who has been touched by cancer, and in particular, breast cancer. Each October, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are all given an opportunity to help do our part in finding a cure for breast cancer.
During the past couple of years, The National Percheron Association and the World Percheron Congress have teamed up with Susan G. Komen for the Cure by selling “Drive for the Cure” bracelets to raise money to fight breast cancer. The pink bracelets include artwork of a Percheron horse and the words “Drive for the Cure.”
This fund raising effort will conclude in October 2014 on the final day of the 2014 World Percheron Congress during the Drive For Cure Charity Cart Class. All ages of drivers and sexes of horses will compete in the class. The only requirement is that the drivers wear pink. Cancer survivors will be invited to ride with participants.
So while we are all excited and waiting impatiently for the 2014 World Percheron Congress (OK so maybe that is just me) remember to also buy your “Drive for the Cure” bracelet NOW at 2014worldpercheroncongress.com. It will serve as a reminder about all the cancer survivors we know as well as keep us excited about the 2014 Congress and as a bonus help raise funds to fight breast cancer.
