View Full Version : Show for the Cure's 10th Anniversary!

09-01-2016, 11:07 AM

​ In 2007 I held my model horse show benefiting cancer awareness, Show for the Cure Live.
The show raised nearly $3000, which I split and donated to two organizations dedicated to fighting cancer. In just nine years, we have raised close to $35,000 with the help of our wonderful donators. This is becoming one of the Midwest’s longest running shows, as we are currently coming up to our 10th year. It is our dream to see it as one of the Midwest’s largest cancer fundraisers as well, and we couldn’t do it without our wonderful sponsors and showers!
2016 was postponed due to me being pregnant with my twins, but we are back!

As of October 2014, my mother nearly lost her life to ovarian, uterine and cancer of the appendix. She had emergency surgery to remove an 8 pound tumor from her abdomen. On July 10, 2000, my beloved uncle died from a brain tumor. He was just 34 years old with a brand new baby girl, and in 2006, my husband's grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer, his other with skin cancer found on her nose. On March 7, 2010, my grandmother was diagnosed with liver cancer, and my mother is a repeat cervical cancer survivor. In 2012, my godmother lost her battle with breast cancer. I have been wanting to host a live show, but there have been many things in my way that has slowed me down, and now I hope to be able to host a wonderful show for everyone! I thank you from the bottom of my heart. This show is for all you with cancer, survived cancer, and of course, lost a loved one to cancer. I thank you for taking the time to look at the site and consider showing!

Our show won the NAMHSA 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2012 Runner-Up Show of the Year. Our show attracts model and horse people from all over including but not limited to; New Jersey, Indiana, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Michigan and Missouri. We aim to bring cancer awareness to all, as well as to encourage the learning and knowledge of real horses. We have tack and prop makers, as well as painters!

I will be holding the show again on March 18, 2017 in Carol Stream, Illinois, with a revised class list including 340 classes and 9 divisions. We are NAN qualified​ ​and open for entrants.
We are recognizing children’s cancer, so wear yellow! Proceeds will be going to St. Jude’s.
We did lose our home, so we have had to downsize this year, meaning we won't be able to have as many entrants, but the prizes and fun won't change! We hope to see you there!
