A staple on the schedule at The Event at Rebecca Farm each year is the Halt Cancer at X fundraising drive, which can be seen in pink ribbons painted on horses, loads of pink outfits, and ample opportunity to donate money to the worthwhile cause all week long.

Halt Cancer at X was founded in memory of Rebecca Farm founder Rebecca Broussard in 2012. Rebecca Broussard passed away in 2010 after a brave battle with cancer, having left a lasting legacy not only on the local equestrian community but upon the city of Kalispell and beyond. That legacy now lives on in many ways, one of which is Halt Cancer at X.

The program provides financial grants to support local organizations, providing mammography screenings, financial assistance and other services to breast cancer patients, with nearly $1 million in donations made since its inception. Donations continue to fund breast cancer research and local community outreach/awareness programs. Grant applications for this year’s cycle are currently open through October 1.

For those competing or otherwise attending Rebecca Farm, you can make donation pledges at the show office, and keep an eye out for other activities including a silent auction that will also help raise funds for Halt Cancer at X. You can learn more about the program by clicking here.
