TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
The Tucson rodeo
opens tomorrow and there is a special event that will happen on the second day
of the rodeo, Sunday.
The Chicks N Chaps is
hosting a rodeo clinic, with funds raised going to breast cancer research at
the University of Arizona Cancer Center. The day will feature a series of clinics
designed to explain the basics of rodeo competition with presentations by the
UA Roping team, and will happen in a fun ‘girls-day-out' atmosphere. Chicks N Chaps inaugural event is also being
held in conjunction with the Tucson Rodeo's Pink Day. Pink Day highlights breast cancer research,
preventions and patient services.
Chicks N Chaps is an
all volunteer program co-chaired by Mary Davis and Eileen Geraghty.
"When we learned
about the program, it just made natural sense to bring it to Tucson," said
Geraghty in a release. "It combines our love of rodeo and an issue that is very
important to the community and we were really excited when the Rodeo Committee
said they thought it was a great idea."
"It's a unique way to
bring people together for breast cancer support," Davis added. "With the rodeo
as the backdrop, women can get together without walks, or finding sponsors, and
have a day of learning about the sport of rodeo, networking and enjoying one of
Tucson's cultural signature events."
"We are pleased that Chicks N Chaps™
Tucson has selected the University of Arizona Cancer Center as the beneficiary
of its inaugural program. Every dollar contributed to research puts us a step
closer to finding cures and ways to prevent this disease," said Alison Stopeck,
M.D., Director of the UACC's Clinical Breast Cancer Program.
