Helping Hooves hits the trail to aid cancer fight

There’s nothing quite like a long trail ride for a good cause.

The cancer-support group Helping Hooves is staging a three-week-long trail ride across Manitoba in August, attempting to meet or beat last year’s effort in which 41 riders raised $35,000.

Participants can ride for a day, a week, or join the whole ride, which starts in Kleefeld August 10, loops around north of Winnipeg and winds up at the Manitoba Agricultural Museum in Austin Aug. 31.

Non-riders can get involved by attending one of the kick-off or windup events or contributing as a sponsor.

The organization supports breast cancer patients with out-of-pocket expenses such as gas money for appointments, day care and wig costs not covered by the province.
