The event organizer, Lisa Llinnares Wolf of Islip Terrace says she started the event to honor her best friend who has had breast cancer. She says, “I do it because like her, many more women will be diagnosed and need care, services, support and assistance, and I want to make sure that Adelphi is able to continue offering those things to those that need it most. I do it because my grandmother died of breast cancer, just like so many other grandmothers, mothers, sisters, daughters and friends.”

Established in 2000, The New York Natural Equestrians are dedicated to using and promoting Natural Horsemanship training methods to foster safe, enjoyable and respectful relationships between horse and human, enabling riders to ride whenever they want, wherever they want, with whomever they want, at any gait they want...safely. The organization has raised a total of $27,000 in these past four years to benefit the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program.

Anyone who is worried about breast cancer should call the hotline for help at 800-877- 8077. You are not alone.
