KALISPELL - A local breast cancer campaign, launched just last year, is quickly gaining national support.
Wednesday, Rebecca Farm awarded $71,000 to local and national organizations battling breast cancer. It's part of their "Halt Cancer at X" initiative.
Organizers collected donations over the summer during the Event at Rebecca Farm. The Event has become the largest equestrian event in the US.
"Halt Cancer at the X" also appears to be growing, bringing in about $6,000 more than it did in its inaugural year.
The campaign was created in memory of the Event's Founder-Rebecca Broussard-she lost her fight to breast cancer in 2010.
