It even has sparkly beads! SQUEEEEE!

It even has sparkly beads! SQUEEEEE!

As you may recall, my blogging buddy Marissa asked me to team up with her to do the 3rd Annual Ride for the Cure to raise funds for breast cancer research.  Our team is called Bays for Boobies because her horse Tucker and Sug, our official team captains, are both bays.

Since I last wrote about our efforts, we’ve been very busy.  Two teammates, Ethan and Chrisie, have joined us, and thanks to a bunch of wonderful folks, we’ve done a fantastic job raising funds!  Bays for Boobies has raised over $2,000 for the Central and South Jersey Komen Ride for the Cure!

WHOOHOO!!  I’d like to offer a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who has donated, and to everyone who plans to keep us in their thoughts as we try to help make a difference.  Thanks to your support Bays for Boobies is in 4th place in terms of funds raised!

The ride is tomorrow, and, well, lets just say we have been enjoying the HECK out of ourselves getting ready for it! We are gonna look like a Pepto Bismol explosion on horseback!  Sug will be keeping cool and comfy and sporting a specially embroidered CoolFit Jumper Pad with the pink breast cancer ribbon, which was donated to the cause by the wonderful folks at ECOGOLD.   Marissa’s mom made a  ribbon/ flower wreath that will go in their tails.  We have a breast cancer ribbon stencil for their rumps, hot pink ear bonnets, hot pink polo wraps, and hot pink bell boots.

We will also have pink crystal rubber bands to braid their manes with, pink glitter for their manes and tails, and we’ll all be wearing pink shirts/sweaters.  Even Ethan, who is very secure in his man-hood and would look handsome in any color you put him in.  Are we going a bit overboard??  NAH!!!!

Pink Glitter? Me likey!!

Pink Glitter? Heck Yeah!!!!!

And for zee tail, we have zee pretty flower!

I CANNOT wait to get to the event to see everyone all decked out in their best pink duds with all their pinked-up/pimped-up ponies.  Rest assured there will be many pictures to share with you all!!

Thank you again to all of you for your well wishes and support, as we truly feel we are helping to make a difference.
