Help Support CAN Cancer at Jefferson County and Deschutes County Rodeos

Come early to the rodeo and help support CAN Cancer.  Around 6:30 p.m. Friday night, volunteers will be passing purple cans around the stands asking rodeo fans to support CAN Cancer by making a donation.  Last year rodeo goers donated $712 and over the past several years, $5,712 has been donated by rodeo fans for CAN cancer!
