Susan G. Komen Thanks FAST For Support To End Breast Cancer



The Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse’s (FAST) was recognized in the top 33% of all fundraisers for Susan G. Komen Passionately Pink For The Cure.  FAST recently received a letter thanking it for its support through fundraising in the efforts of Susan G. Komen to eliminate breast cancer.

The fundraising efforts of FAST resulted solely from the donations made by exhibitors in both the pleasure and padded performance Breast Cancer Awareness classes at FAST horse shows.  The classes have been very popular with exhibitors and the donations made in lieu of entry fees resulted in FAST being a top 33% fundraising organization.

“We are honored to be recognized by Susan G. Komen for our efforts but the true thank you should be to our industry for their support of these classes and their generosity in their donations,” said FAST President Bruce Vaughn.  “The Walking Horse family is a very generous and charitable community and FAST is just one example of how horse shows are helping to make a difference in the lives of those in need,” concluded Vaughn.

In order to help promote and preserve our horse, please help future projects by making a donation to FAST either on its web site at www.FASTWalkingShowHorse.org or by mailing to PO Box 259, Shelbyville, TN 37162.

FAST is a 501 (c)3 organization that’s mission is to promote and preserve the Tennessee Walking Show Horse.  All donations are tax deductible and are put to immediate use in the industry.  For more information or to make a donation visit FAST online at www.FASTWalkingShowHorse.org
