Cowboys Promote Cancer Research


Cowboys are known for horseback riding, roping bulls and branding, but in Las Cruces, they are also known for starting a non-profit organization called Cowboys for Cancer Research.
Cowboys for Cancer Research began 28 years ago when Las Cruces native Alma Cohorn died of breast cancer. To honor her memory, Cohorn’s family and friends decided to get together and host the first dinner and team roping competition to raise money to fight the very disease that took the life of a good friend.      Link
