Public Service[edit]

Notable public service efforts have included "Are You Tough Enough to Wear Pink?", a 2007 campaign rallying the rodeo and western industry to raise money and awareness for breast cancer treatment and research.[3] The campaign ultimately raised over $26,000 for a new cancer exercise rehabilitation center at the Minot Family YMCA.
