About Ride the Trail to a Cure

In 2006 The Grey Mare Society (our group of ladies over 50 who ride together) decided to combine a fall trail ride with raising funds to fight breast cancer. We thought that rather than riding for a national organization, we would support organizations that directly help the breast cancer victims in our area. So we organized a trail ride to benefit The Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition and Breast Cancer Awareness - Cumberland Valley. I am a survivor and am personally aware of how much good both of these groups do. Their web sites are in the links to the left.

Rides have also been organized in PA, MD, and NJ, and to date more than $240,000.00 has been raised for local and state breast cancer organizations.   

If you are interested in organizing a Ride the Trail to a Cure in your area for a state or local BC organization, please contact us through this site or lgolden@embarqmail.com.

Ride the Trail to a Cure receives honor from PBCC.

The Pennsylvania Equine Council continues to support our Ride and our exposure at the Harrisburg World Horse Expo has helped to expand the Ride in PA and bordering states. We also have had the opportunity to meet celebrity horsemen including the extraordinary Craig Cameron.
