SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Ride for a Cure event is hosted by the Empire State Quarter Horse Youth Association and will raise money for breast cancer research.
The proceeds will benefit the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, and is scheduled for this coming Friday. It's all part of the Spring Into Summer horse show held throughout the entire weekend.
Admission is free, but there will be raffles, t-shirts, and other items for sale to benefit the foundation.
"We're raising money for such a great cause. Coming out and competing and then being able to go into Ride for a Cure and just have something that's fun at the end of the day, it just takes all the pressure away," said Erin Webb, the president of ESQHYA.
"Everything we do, is just trying to make that special for those people are struggling through that. And, just trying to get them money to help them find a cure," said Anna Culver, the vice president of ESQHYA.
The Empire State Quarter Horse Youth Association includes members from across New York State. The Ride for a Cure competition will kick off at 5:30 p.m.
