Rodeo event helps raise money for breast cancer awareness

Women in Montana are taking on breast cancer with a lasso in hand, raising money to benefit women in the state who have been diagnosed with the disease, NBC Montana reports.

Shannone Hart organized the Chicks'N Chaps event, which is held for one day at the Western Montana Fair. This was the third year the event took place.

"We are having a women's only rodeo clinic, so women get to go into the rodeo arena and learn about the sport from real cowboys," she told the new source.

The cattle ranchers showed more than 200 women basic techniques on how to rope a bull. The ladies were also given the chance to ride some animals, if they wanted.

Last year's event raised more than $30,000, and Hart said this year they accumulated even more. The money raised goes directly to the women of Montana to help them battle breast cancer.

According to the American Cancer Society, more than 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year in the United States.ADNFCR-2795-ID-19926341-ADNFCR
