Be sure to join the Pink Out Celebration on Tuesday, November 13!
Join the American Quarter Horse Association on Tuesday, November 13, for a Pink Out Celebration at the 2012 Bank of America and FedEx Open World Championship Show in Oklahoma City. AQHA encourages everyone to wear pink all day to celebrate survivors and remember friends and family who have fought the battle against cancer.
AQHA, the Stephenson Cancer Center and the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center are pleased to offer the third annual health fair for horsemen, -women and spectators from 1-3 p.m. on November 13 in the Sales Pavilion Office.
The health screening offered at the health fair includes:
The health fair will also include coupons for free mammograms for qualifying low-income Oklahoma residents.
After the health fair, be sure to stick around to Take Aim at Cancer during the Tuesday night finals performance. Purchase your Rein in Cancer frisbees at Shorty’s Caboy Hattery booth in the Trade Show, the AQHA booth or in the show office. Each frisbee is $5, and proceeds benefit the Shirley Bowman Nutrition Clinic at the Stephenson Cancer Center.
You will get a chance to throw your frisbee at a target in the arena at the kick-off of the evening’s trail finals. One lucky person whose frisbee lands in the target or closest to the target, will receive a 100X hat donated by Shorty’s Caboy Hattery.
Shorty’s Caboy Hattery is dedicated to the true tradition of the Western Cowboy and offers custom made Western cowboy hats that are handmade and hand crafted, while also offering hat restoration and reconstruction services.
Rein in Cancer has raised funding to create and run the Shirley Bowman Nutrition Center at the Stephenson Cancer Center and furnishes direct financial support to cancer patients who are part of the horse industry. With nearly $800,000 raised, founders Shorty Koger, Cheryl (Magoteaux) Cody and Tracie Anderson credit the generosity of the horse world, through bequests, memorials promotions and gifts.
