Riders warm up their horses and practise at the Westoba Agricultural Centre of Excellence on Friday afternoon in preparation for the Campbell’s Jump for the Cure Breast Cancer Charity Show, which was held over the weekend. The inaugural event almost jumped right out of the Keystone Centre. Kelly Campbell helped organize the horse show, asking competitors to make a $30 donation to enter. After donations from the more than 110 entries, plus money collected from raffles and draws, $10,000 was raised for breast cancer research. “We wanted to do something special to honour our aunt who had breast cancer and recently passed away,” said Campbell, who ran the show with her sister Bonnie. “The turnout was great and we’re so happy it will become an annual event.” The sisters’ next show is Nov. 22-23 at the Keystone Centre and is free to the public.
