This year’s Pomfret Hunter Pace is offering the opportunity to help those in our community who are battling cancer.  Registered Pomfret Hunter Pace riders can also choose to participate in the 4th annual Pace for a Purpose to benefit Day Kimball Healthcare Deary Memorial Cancer Fund.                                                                    With the addition of Pace for a Purpose, riders are now offered an element to make this event even better: the knowledge that they are helping local cancer patients who are in need of treatment such as mammograms, chemotherapy, medications, and other services and don’t have the resources to obtain them. Let your donation support your community. Riders who raise a minimum of $50.00 in donations will receive a special thank you gift. A special benefit drawing for an equine portrait by Jim Boone, open to all riders and attendees, will be held on the day of the event.
