The efforts of Cowboys for Cancer Research have been near and dear to my heart for some time. This is my fifth year volunteering with the group, and it’s been satisfying to see all the great work they do being recognized.

A little more subdued than in years past, the dinner/dance was still a blast, with the same characters making this a fantastic event. You can’t have the dance without the Delk Band; they’ve been a staple much longer than I’ve been involved and they never fail to entertain with their great music.


Hooping it up for cancer research with the Lady Trojans

The Mayfield Lady Trojans presented Cowboys for Cancer Research (C4CR) a check for $2,510.00 during halftime at Tuesday night’s game with Las Cruces High.

The money, raised via their “Hooping It Up For Cancer Research” campaign, will be used by C4CR and the UNM Cancer Research Center in their efforts in finding a cure for this terrible disease.

Oralia Ortega, from KTSM, the local NBC affiliate was on hand as a special guest of the Lady Trojans. Ortega took time to thank the Lady Trojans for their efforts.
