TWHBEA joins the fight with Relay For Life



In effort to support those that have survived cancer, lost loved ones to cancer and may be stricken with cancer in the future, searching for a cure – the TWHBEA is teaming up with Relay For Life. 

Ernie Brewbaker (Ranger T. Walker - Celebration Flag Horse, owner) approached the TWHBEA with an idea to have a Walking Horse portion of the event to raise more money and for horse owners to come together in spirit of fellowship and common goal of stamping out cancer. 

The TWHBEA Vice President of Marketing/Advertising, Ashley Wadsworth approved the administrative plan for TWHBEA’s efforts. Ernie Brewbaker, Rory Williams and the Bedford County Relay For Life team identified a safe method of including horses and riders with pedestrians so that all could participate. 

TWHBEA’s portion is administrative, mainly, but Executive Director Rory Williams will be in attendance walking to stamp out cancer and fervently wishes a great many horse owners will bring their loving mounts to flat walk a few hours/miles away and raise pledge money to donate to the cause. 

Pledge sheet, and instructions, can be found on the TWHBEA website and Facebook pages March 30, 2017.
