Ride a horse feed a cowboy, Aug. 27-29
August 20, 2010
The community of Hulett, WY will welcome riders to their community Aug. 27-29 for their fourth annual event known as “Ride A Horse Feed A Cowboy.”
Ride A Horse Feed A Cowboy is a non-profit organization that raises funds for community members battling cancer. This year’s benefit recipient is Deena Parnell. Born and raised in Wyoming, Parnell and her husband own and operate the Hulett Hardware store. In March she was diagnosed with Metastatic Malignant Melanoma. In May Deena underwent a total hysterectomy, where they found three other cancers. She also has had several masses removed from her right arm, which is presently healing. She underwent radiation treatment at the end of July. Deena says she is just taking one day at a time and still likes to ride her horses when she can.
