Neosho Barnyard Days raises money for Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks

Updated:

With Breast Cancer Awareness month taking place in October...the breast cancer foundation of the Ozarks is hoping to raise some money....farming style!

Sunday wrapped up the annual barnyard days in Neosho--with all proceeds going back to breast cancer.

The weekend included arts and crafts vendors, train and tractor rides for kids, and a single mic contest.

Mercy's mammogram mobile was also on site for mammogram screenings. Reduced cost and no cost mammogram's were available for those who qualified.

Officials with the breast cancer foundation tell us that breast cancer impacts everyone's life, one way or another.

"When you look at it there's really no one that hasn't been touched by breast cancer.  So many times it's someone's sister, their mother, their friend, and if you don't know someone with a breast cancer diagnosis, unfortunately it's only a matter of time before you will." says Crystal Webster, Executive Director of the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks.

Steve Roark of circle R ranch tells us even though it was a rainy Saturday - the group still expects to exceed their highest amount of money raised for the event.
