Gunnison Cattlemen’s Days Rodeo is honored again to be the #1 Tough Enough To Wear Pink fundraiser in the country for 2018.
Cattlemen’ss Days Tough Enough To Wear Pink is an extraordinary example of just how much this small town community rises to support and help each other. Everyone in this community who has volunteered, donated, sponsored or worn pink at the PRCA rodeo made this happen and should be deeply proud!
We were also honored at the PRCA National Convention for being one of the top 5 PRCA Rodeo committees for giving back to our community in the Heston Tractor Sowing Good Deeds Award. With more than 600 PRCA rodeos nationally, this is a big honor and we are very grateful to be recognized for our community philanthropy and local efforts.
The proof is in our accomplishments. Since its inception, Gunnison Cattlemen’s Days TETWP has given more than $1.5 Million back to our local community, from buying tanks of gas and groceries for breast cancer patients to providing state-of-the-art 3D tomosynthesis equipment (with over 1,000 mammograms performed at GVH in 2018). In 2018, we added another transportation vehicle to our fleet so all cancer patients can safely get to appointments and treatments out of town.
In little and big ways, TETWP is making a huge difference in the lives of our friends and neighbors.
This is something our community can celebrate and be proud of! We cannot do it without the staggering support of our volunteers and donors.
HATS OFF to our numerous volunteers and sponsors that make Cattlemen’s Days Rodeo and all our TETWP Events throughout the year so successful!
