Walking For Cancer Announces Date Change



The Walking For Cancer Horse Show will be held Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 5 p.m. at the Bedford Ag Center. The show will feature 30 classes including Riders’ Cup classes, a Pink Ribbon class, and a $2,000 Walking Horse Championship. 

Show Manager Joni Jenne′ stated, “Our show date fell on the Panama City show this year and we felt it was important to move our show to ensure that the industry can support both of these great shows. We want both shows to be as successful as possible for the respective charities that they support.”

Walking For Cancer is the major source of funds for the Bedford Cancer Foundation, a 501(c)(3) corporation that has provided grants of more than $22,000 to cancer patients in Bedford County in the last two years.  Prior to the formation of the Foundation, this horse show provided more than $36,000 to the American Cancer Society.

We are working hard to put on a great show for the industry!  If you can sponsor a class, ribbons or a trophy, you will have the opportunity to name that sponsorship in memory of someone who has died from cancer or in honor of someone who is a survivor.  All of these names will appear in the show program.

For information, please contact Joni Jenne´ at 931-224-3046, email to jjenne46@att.net or contact one of our Board members – Kay Adcock, Connie Allen, Becky Barnes, Kim Byrom, Jennifer Damron, Jo Ann Fann, Renee Frances, Rebecca Jones, Debbie Marbry, Jeffrey McGee, Navid Monajjem, Jean O’Brien, Barbara Ann Pate, Iris Schumann, or Virginia Stewart.
