Shadow Race in Vernon, TX was a success!
The Cook Family: "Thank you to all of the sponsors for the 1st Annual Shadow Race in Vernon, Texas!  We cannot thank you enough for the support in raising awareness for Porphyria.  In our 1st annual race we were able to collect monetary donations, totaling $5000 for the "added money".  Also donated were items such as custom made buckles, custom made spur straps, Total Equine Feed, head stalls, hay bags, rope halters, and other horse maintenance supplies.   Pizza, candy, homemade cinnamon rolls, and drinks were donated for the concession stand and t-shirts were sold.  In all we were able to donate $4000 to the American Porphyria Foundation and pay out $11,600 to the winners!  A huge thank you to all that supported and or donated!  We look forward to the 2nd Annual Shadow Race in 2016 and hope you will consider giving again!"
