  • Tough Enough to Wear Pink was created by entrepreneur and breast cancer survivor Terry Wheatley in 2004 with Karl Stressman, former director of special events for Wrangler and former commissioner of the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PCRA), to bring the sport of professional rodeo and the western community together to rally against breast cancer. The campaign has raised millions of dollars for breast cancer charities, much of which stays right in the community. Join 101.7 The Bull as we celebrate another year of Tough Enough To Wear Pink at the Tri-State Rodeo in Fort Madison! Wear your pink shirt to the rodeo on Thursday, September 8th to show your support! Tee Shirt Sales locations can be found at 1017TheBull.
