March 16, 2012

The Oregon Trail Rodeo Association presented a check for more than $1,600 to the Morrison Cancer Center , 11:30 a.m., Monday March 5. The check represented money raised during the Oregon Trail Rodeo's annual Tough Enough to Wear Pink Night at the rodeo over Labor Day weekend, 2011.

The Center used the funds to purchase an ice machine for chemotherapy patients. The machine is specially designed to form ice pellets with air in them to help prevent mouth sores.

"Many people, depending on the typed of treatment, suck on ice while undergoing the treatments," said Jaci Nore, Morrison Cancer Center Project Manager, "Soft ice melts in your mouth."

During the past five years of Tough Enough to Wear Pink Night, around $17,000 has purchase items for patients at the Morrison Cancer Center.

The 2012 Oregon Trail Rodeo is scheduled for August 31 through September 2 at the Adams County Fairgrounds.
