The Barrel Race in Vernon, TX
We also would like to remind you about the upcoming undertaking from the Cook family. As you may know, the Cook brothers, Cason and Caul, have EPP and have set a great example about enhancing awareness of the disease in their local area. They have been hosting a Hat Day for many years in their home town of Vernon, TX. This year, in addition to a Hat Day, Cason & Caul are hosting The Shadow Race (benefit barrel race) in Vernon, TX in November.  They are getting some t-shirts together to sell as well. We appreciate all your support in raising awareness!
