Are you T.E.T.W.P.? What exactly does that mean? The Desertview ProRodeo committee wonders if you are Tough Enough to Wear Pink. Gary Arrington from Desertview Credit Union is ready to step up in support of breast cancer awareness.
The rodeo committee wants every rodeo fan through the gate on July 26 to show their support by wearing a pink shirt, hat, ribbon or just anything will do. For every pink fan the rodeo will make a donation for breast cancer awareness.
The Desertview Pro Rodeo has partnered with Tough Enough to Wear Pink for the Thursday night performance. Tough Enough to Wear Pink has been raising big bucks for cancer across the nation. Some of the largest rodeos in the nation have climbed on board. Many of them have raised $30,000 and more for a single event.
Wrangler is a partner in the cause and donates all of the money from the sale of pink shirts to breast cancer awareness.
Rodeo organizers say, "We want everyone to know that we support you in your fight against cancer. We would like to encourage all cancer survivors to come out to the Thursday night rodeo and to wear pink.
