To the many volunteers who donated their time in the “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” booths during the stampede, and also to those who contributed monetarily.

We appreciate the opportunity to manage the funds on behalf of the community. We are truly grateful to the Ponoka Stampede Association for taking the initiative by sponsoring this program and keeping a great portion of the funds in our community.
