Open Range: Cowboys For Cancer Research's Benefit Boot

C4CR continues its effort to rope in cancer.

Founded in Las Cruces, New Mexico, after local roper Kenneth Cohorn lost his wife to cancer, Cowboys for Cancer Research (C4CR) has been supporting studies to find a cure for more than three decades. In 1982, in honor of community member Alma Cohorn, the organization established a team roping competition and benefit, which has since become one of the largest roping events in New Mexico.

Today C4CR hosts a myriad of annual events to raise funds for cancer research, including a Rootin’ Tootin’ Rib Cookoff and, for racing fans, a benefit night at the Southern New Mexico Speedway. This past fall C4CR even partnered up with New Mexico State University Aggies to cohost their first-ever golf tournament fundraiser. Expanding its efforts even further this year, the organization has teamed up with Anderson Bean to introduce a C4CR benefit boot. Boasting the C4CR healing bear logo, the 13-inch square-toe cowboy roper also features an American bison vamp and double-welt stitching.

To order a pair of C4CR boots, contact Western Mercantile in Las Cruces at 575.523.9351; for more information on C4CR events, call 575.524.0475 or visit www.cowboysforcancerresearch.org.
