Rodear the Cross hosts event to help local teenager
BEVERLY — Cowboys and cowgirls from across the nation converged at Dakan Arena recently for a good cause.
Rodear the Cross hosted a benefit for Beverly teenager Haley Cunningham, who was diagnosed with nodular sclerosis Hodgkin lymphoma in late January.
Haley’s mother, Sarah Cunningham, is the director at Camp Pioneer and Dakan Arena.
The event included horsemanship clinic, 1-man doctoring and 3-man ranch roping.
“To say (the event) was a success is a sure understatement,” organizers stated. “A great group of amazing people came together for an even greater family.
“Haley Cunningham and family walked away with the biggest smiles and the money that was raised. We want to thank the people that helped make the weekend a success and the ones that came and supported.”
The mission of Rodear the Cross starts and ends with Christ and his guidance to be an impact to our community and the communities of those who share the value of cowboy lifestyle.
Barbour County residents Brent Sinsel and Jamie Andrews formed Rodear the Cross, and also organized the benefit held at Dakan Arena for Haley Cunningham.
