Every week we team up with Ovation Riding to recognize those doing good in the horse world. Today we recognize the FLAIR Equine Nasal strips, which has launched a new line that will donate money to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital to aid in the faight agains childhood cancer.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, bringing awareness to the leading cause of death by disease for children under the age of 14. Flair Equine Nasal Strips has launched a new line of “Kick Childhood Cancer FLAIR Strips, available exclusively through their website.
The FLAIR Strips are designed to acknowledge and support the toughness that kids with cancer and their families face every year. A portion of sales of this design will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
In 2014, Flair LLC debuted a “For the Kids” Gold FLAIR Strip that 2xNFR Barrel Racer Nancy Hunter championed to bring more awareness to Childhood Cancer. Nancy had a very special place in her heart for Childhood Cancer, as one of her son’s battled cancer at a young age and fortunately won the fight.
However, on March 12, 2017 Nancy passed away after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Flair continues to honor Nancy’s legacy with a Limited Edition Gold FLAIR Strip. The company retired the “For the Kids” FLAIR Strip design and is pleased to debut the new “Kick Childhood Cancer” design.
The gold ribbon color in honor of international awareness for Childhood Cancer shines a light on this cause to which Flair will donate 25% of each sale to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Their website states that “The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. No child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.”
