‘Race to beat cancer’ is new fair event

Comet staff report

Carroll County Extension Homemakers are sponsoring a new “horse race” event. It will take place Thursday, July 19, during the Carroll County 4- H Fair.

The race will begin at 6:15 p.m. in the roadway between the show ring and the Open Class Building. Show support for a favorite jockey - Eric Johnson, Dave Lambert, Sam Moffitt, Steve Nichols, Bill Shidler and Scott Wagoner - while donating money for cancer research.

EH members are collecting pledges and dollars to support the State IEHA cancer project which has donated over $198,000 to the Purdue Cancer Research Center. Make pledges in honor or memory of someone through any Extension Homemaker or at the fair.
