The Pink Ladies Riding Performance Team are members of the Round Valley Riders 4H Horse Club here in Hunterdon County! This team was formed 9 years ago when one of the Mom's in the club was diagnosed with breast cancer. The club members felt that they needed to help more and decided to form a riding team that would raise awareness and money for breast cancer patients. With the help of their coach, Chelsie Ditzel-Malavasi, the Pink Ladies Riding Team turned their passion for riding into something amazing to help others in need.
The team members practice from May to August and perform all week during the Hunterdon County 4H & Agricultural Fair. The members also speak in public about their cause and participate in local parades.
This team has raised and donated over $15,000 to various breast cancer organizations to help defray the costs of patient's expenses.
This year, the money raised will go to the Hunterdon Medical Center's - Cancer Center.
Team members are: Captain Mackenzie Snyder, Avery Schaefer, Eva Zajac, Lydia Kilinski and Emma Jackson
