3/31 | Cantastic Pay It Forward Benefit Barrel Race | Redmond, Oregon

Please join us in supporting this local fundraiser benefiting Sara Beasley.  This barrel race is free to attend on Sunday, March 31, 2019.

More directly from Cantastic:

Cantastic is proud to announce our Pay It Forward recipeint this year.

Sara Beasley

Sara is a 39 year old mother who was born with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). CF is a genetic lung disease that causes a thick mucus build up in your sinuses, lungs and intestines. This mucus causes frequent lung infections which causes scarring of the airways. This causes our lung function to drop, eventually causing the lungs to give out. Can also have many digestive issues including not absorbing important nutrients that are in our diet.

Saras lung function is currently between 33% and 35% (normal is around 100%) she has been placed on the waiting list for a double lung transplant. While this is a scary and a life changing procedure, it is also an expensive one!

We truly appreciate everyone’s kindness and donations- for this is a battle Sara can not face alone. If you would like to make a donation please feel free to pm us or please join us during the High Desert Stampede weekend at our Pay It Forward barrel race.

Champion Buckles in each class.

"I am so blessed to have so many caring people in my life! I want to live as long as possible to watch my beautiful daughter grow and get married and to someday meet my possible grandchildren! Thank you so much for everything!!" - Sara Beasley
