Rodeo Benefits Charity

Posted: Updated:

The Y's Men's Rodeo wasn't just about the high-action sport.

During the rodeo, the Trinity Health's Cancer Exercise Program at the YMCA received a donation thanks to the Tough Enough to Wear Pink Campaign.

That donation of over $101,000 paired with over $19,000 generated from a motorcycle auction brought the grand total to over $120,000.

Cancer Exercise Rehab Program Coordinator, Russell Gust, says the Tough Enough to Wear Pink campaign will help benefit the program that has benefited cancer patients' lives.

(Russell Gust, Cancer Exercise Rehab Program Coordinator)"You go to work, you do your dishes, you go shopping--a lot of those things these people can't do because they're so tired. Just giving them a little bit of strength training, a little bit of cardiovascular exercise, they're able to go about their day."

The donation funds were raised through Tough Enough to Wear Pink merchandise sales.
