The Walking for Cancer Horse Show is the major source of funds for The Bedford Cancer Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) corporation that in four years has provided more than $40,000 in assistance to patients and families in Bedford County that are having financial difficulties due to having cancer.

The Board and  members invite the community to come out to enjoy the show and help us raise funds to assist county residents.   Please call should someone like to sponsor a class, ribbon, or a trophy.  This can be done in memory or in honor of a cancer victim.
