Murwillumbah Pink Dressage raises funds for breast cancer
THE COLOUR pink dominated the Murwillumbah Showground on Sunday for Murwillumbah Equestrian Club's Pink Dressage day.
Riders and even some horses were dressed in pink to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Club Secretary Keighley Leeson knows all too well the impact the illness has with women in her family having suffered from breast cancer for generations.
"My mum has had breast cancer, my family has the gene that causes it, my older sister was not a survivor," Mrs Leeson said.
"Basically all the females in my family have had it."
Mrs Leeson said the entire community had been a great support since the event started three years ago.
"Dressage is a female sport so it matched perfectly to have this event, local businesses have been great as has our major sponsor South Coast Automotive who donated $1000 before the event started, along with prizes for the event," Mrs Leeson said.
