Romping stomping cowboys wore pink attire at the Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo on Tuesday to help raise awareness for breast cancer. The Stock Show partnered with the Susan G. Komen Greater Fort Worth Affiliate to raise funds to aid breast cancer victims and to help fund research.

Fifty percent of the general admission and rodeo ticket sales from the day were donated to help fight the disease. Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital gave free mammograms.

Throuughout the day, Stock Show personnel wore pink in various forms: shirts, ties, bandanas, tattoos….

“It’s wonderful that the rough and tough cowboys are wearing their pink shirts,” said Mary Nan Doran, a board member of the Greater Fort Worth Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen organization. “It gets the message out.”

Tracey Boyes, executive director of the Susan G. Komen Greater Fort Worth Affiliate, said she was grateful that the Stock Show offered tremendous support.

“Can you get any more Fort Worth than the Stock Show and Rodeo? It’s what we all wait for,” Boyes said. “What a fabulous venue to increase awareness. We get to sit here with the thousands of people who come to see the rodeo and educate them.”
