Letter to the Editor: Thanks to 'Tough Enough' rodeo

— Thanks to Tough

To the editor:

It’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I can’t think of a better time to show my appreciation to the Fort Dalles Rodeo Association. Thank you, for not only bringing such a fantastic rodeo to The Dalles, but also for keeping your donation local!

For the fifth year in a row, the Fort Dalles Rodeo Association donated their “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” dollars to the Mid-Columbia Health Foundation’s Breast Health for Strong Families Program. This year’s donation was the highest ever at $4,500.

The Breast Health for Strong Families Program has provided 260 free screening mammograms to local women resulting in five breast cancer diagnoses.

Donations from the Fort Dalles Rodeo Association have directly benefitted these women and we can’t say thank you enough.
