Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo (FWSSR) fans will want to get their pink on as the Stock Show focuses on raising breast cancer awareness on January 25. In this effort, the Stock Show welcomes a new partnership with the Careity Foundation which was founded by Lynn Walsh and Beverly Branch, both of whom lost a mother to breast cancer. Half of rodeo ticket and grounds admission sales that day will benefit the Fort Worth-based organization.
“Partnering with the Stock Show is phenomenal,” said Branch, emphasizing that Careity assists patients facing other types of cancer, as well. “Careity provides a continuity of care and stays involved with patients throughout their entire journey. This partnership will help us inform potential donors and eventually provide more funds allowing us to provide more care.”
Careity provides a wide range of services including cancer navigation, dietician services, nutritional supplements, mammograms, diagnostics, biopsies, surgeries, psychotherapy, social worker and chaplain services, as well as medical massage therapy, reflexology and acupuncture, all with a personal touch.
“We’re excited to be partnering with the Careity Foundation,” said FWSSR President and General Manager Brad Barnes. “Cancer affects not only the patients, but their families as well, some of whom are members of our stock show and rodeo families. Dickies Arena will be filled with pink as rodeo contestants and fans wear the color in raising awareness.”
Careity will provide a limited number of pink bandanas as fans enter Dickies Arena for the rodeo performance that begins at 7:30 p.m. Rodeo tickets for Stock Show Goes Pink Day can be purchased at https://www.fwssr.com/p/tickets.
