“Chasing Dreams, Finding Cures” Barrel Race Fundraiser

For children, cancer can be especially heartbreaking and despite advances in how childhood cancer is treated, the reality is 1 in 5 children will not survive cancer.

“Chasing Dreams, Finding Cures” fundraiser for Key for a Cure Foundation in collaboration with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, is having its fifth annual barrel race Nov. 5-7, 2021, at the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds: 625 Division Street, King City.

A silent auction, which is open to the public, will be held Saturday, Nov. 6, at the Rava Equestrian Arena at the Fairgrounds.

All proceeds donated to through the event will fund innovative pediatric cancer research and a less-toxic immunotherapy treatment that utilizes advance medical technology to reprogram cancer cells. The fundraiser has brought in $80,000 in four years, with a goal to bring in another $30,000 this year. Donations and sponsors are currently being accepted.
