Hundreds of people from all over the country came together today to ride horses for cancer.
The fifth annual "Hoofin' it For a Cure" fundraiser was held today in Roseglen.
The idea came when Rosedale native Dawn Kolden's dad was diagnosed with cancer.
She knew right away she wanted to do everything she could to help find a cure.
This year was the biggest turnout yet, and the first time that people came from as far as California, Maine, and even Alaska.
Participants of all ages went the 14 miles from Roseglen to a farm outside Garrison.
Tomorrow they will get up and go another 12 miles to Garrison's park.
Two of the coordinators of the event, hope the tradition can continue in years to come.
(Sharon Iverson, Helper, Participant) "We're getting bigger and bigger every year. The first year we had twelve people, the next year twenty-three, last year we had around one hundred, and it looks like we have a big group again this year."
(Dawn Kolden, Started "Hoofin' It For a Cure") "It's just a really awesome day to spend with strangers that become friends at the end of the ride."
The money raised is all from free will donations.
