More than just horses
Trina's Halt Cancer at X Story
Early detection saves lives!
Rebecca Farm is about more than just horses… We care about the well being and spirit of our community, as well as national research which will find a cure for Breast Cancer!
In memory of The Event’s Founder, Rebecca Broussard, her daughter, Sarah Broussard, launched “Halt Cancer at X” in 2012 — an initiative to raise money for breast cancer research. The name comes from the dressage test — where the first movement is for the rider to halt the horse at X, a station marked in the arena.
Donations are infused back into Flathead Valley Community Outreach Programs and National Research working toward a cure--expanding ever since through the combined efforts of competitors pledges, auctions, tax deductible contributions, parking donations and imaginative fund raising. Since 2012, Montana Equestrian Events, through the Halt Cancer at X Initiative, has awarded more than $500,000 in grants to local organizations and national research.
“We’re thrilled to take this great platform we have created and make it mean something more to the world,” said Sarah Broussard.
Parking donations collected at The Event help support this campaign.
We also have an opportunity for our competitors to get involved by soliciting pledges towards the Halt Cancer at X Initiative.
Donations are accepted year round and local grants are awarded annually in October.
