Rebecca Farm Saddles Up To Fight Breast Cancer A Second Time

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

Seventy-one thousand dollars from Rebecca Farm is going to fight cancer, $21,000 of that is staying in the Flathead.

Kalispell Regional Medical Center's Winkley Coach mobile clinic is getting $15,000 to offer access to breast cancer screenings twice a month all across the Valley.

KRMC's four hour Mind, Body, and Spirit workshop is also getting $6,000 to cater to the mental and physical needs of patients diagnosed with any type of cancer.

This is the second year of the Halt Cancer at X initiative, raising money through parking donations and pledges at the equestrian triathlon.

"I see Halt Cancer at X continuing as long as either the event at Rebecca Farm continues to run or we find a cure for breast cancer, whichever comes first," said Sarah Broussard, the initiative's founder.

The remaining $50,000 is going to a research lab at the University of Utah.
