October 9th & 10th at Hardin County Fairgrounds
This year we will be raffling off another IH 1066 Pink Pedal Tractor chances are $1.00 a piece or $5.00 to sign the tractor in honor or in memory of a loved one. Drawing will be held at our pull Oct 10th need not be present to win!!! Jenny Richey from Scottsburg Ind. was our lucky 2014 winner!
2014 we were very humbled with the support of our community to make The Burger King Breast Cancer Awareness Truck an Tractor Pull a great success! Mother Nature an the rain made us have to reschedule the pull at the last minute we put it on the following weekend. We still had a great turn out an we were able to donate $ 30,802.51 to Susan G Komen. We are so ecstatic with what we as a group have accomplished our first year 2012 final Donation $14,125.00 an our second year 2013 was $19,365.27. We know this would not be possible without you an our community.
Cancer spares no one's heart; but can not take away anyone's Faith!
Cancer is such a horrible disease that affects so many lives. Statistics show Ky is the number one state with the highest incidence of cancer. Isn't that a scary fact!!! I am sure you all know why The Hornback's fight hard to support Susan G Komen. Tim's wife Carolyn was diagnosed in 1999 with breast cancer. She was cancer free for 11 years an then Carolyn's breast cancer metastasized. Carolyn is such a wonderful loving lady who is definitely giving cancer a fight. Her favorite quote is Don't Count the days Make the Days Count!! She truly lives by that quote. Our sister Helen has also survived breast cancer an has been cancer free since 2003. We lost our mom & dad to cancer, Brent still continues to fight lymphoma an Connie has been cancer free since 2013. So we believe in check ups an prayers to find a cure!!! We have lost numerous loved ones to cancer just like many of you. So hopefully with your support we can help Susan G Komen make a difference in someone's life.

Once again by helping promote The Burger King Breast Cancer Awareness Truck & Tractor Pull I was lucky to feel blessed! A few weeks ago after I posted a picture of the Tshirts we will be selling closer to pull time someone contacted me wanting to place a order for some shirts, also wanted to make an donate a beautiful Breast Cancer Awareness Quilt they made for our auction. This person doesn't even want any of the glory, just wants to be anonymous. The pictures does not even begin to show the beauty of this quilt. The stitches are ribbons really a wonderful touch! This person isn't from around here actually about 75 miles from here, ran across our Facebook page an contacted me! It is such a great feeling how touching this is for someone not from here to make an donate something so beautiful an meaningful! This quilt is a queen size an will be in the live auction with the homemade cakes on Saturday night Oct 10, 2015 Hardin County Fairgrounds Elizabethtown, KY Hope to see you there!
Thanks from The Burger King Breast Cancer Awareness Truck and Tractor Pull Team!
Please join us in the fight against Breast Cancer!!!
