BENEFITING: DAY KIMBALL HEALTHCARE INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
Three years ago a new ride, Pace for a Purpose, was created in Pomfret, CT, to benefit Day Kimball Healthcare Deary Memorial Cancer Fund. On October, 13, 2013, equestrians from all over New England will complete an 8 mile course of 40 cross country jumps while supporting a local cancer fund. The Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH) Deary Memorial Cancer Fund strives to provide cancer-related services and/or routine screening examinations to individuals in our community who otherwise may not have the financial resources available to obtain needed medical attention. The fund was established to assist residents in Northeast Connecticut including: Ashford, Brooklyn, Canterbury, Chaplin, Danielson, Dayville, Eastford, Hampton, Killingly, Moosup, Plainfield, Pomfret, Putnam, Sterling, Thompson and Woodstock.
By participating in this ride I have been able to support local cancer patients in need of treatment including: mammograms, chemotherapy, medications, and educational outreach and navigation services. Unfortunately many more people in our local community are in need of these services, which is why I need your help. Let your donation support your community!
We all know someone who has been touched by cancer, and may even know someone who has benefitted from the Deary Memorial Cancer Fund and fundraising efforts. That is why every donation makes a difference.
I hope you will help me reach my fundraising goal for 2013 by making a donation to Pace for a Purpose or by registering to join me at the Ride! If you don't own a horse, borrow one and join us for an exceptional day in the saddle.
