Spur for the Cure

Welcome to the homepage for Spur for the Cure!

This fundraiser began in 2019 as a way to raise money for both the OSU James Cancer Research Hospital and A Home for Every Horse. Now in its fourth year, we have chosen a new beneficiary – Akron Children’s Hospital – and we know that with your support, we’ll have the biggest and best event yet!

On Saturday, August 27, 2022, the fourth annual Spur for the Cure Benefit Horseback Trail Ride will take place at Camp Manatoc in the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park. (This is the same location as the 2021 event. The course will be different as there are literally hundreds of acres to explore on this property.) Riders will have the opportunity to take a beginner or intermediate trail through the scenic property. Total ride time is estimated at 2 hours. Plenty of parking for truck and trailer. Lunch, gifts and prizes are included, and we will be auctioning and raffling off some amazing items from our generous sponsors and donors as well!

If you’d like more information on sponsoring or donating, contact Centerra’s Equine Specialist, Kathi Green at 440-321-9996, kgreen@centerracoop.com; or Marketing Director Jen Warden at 419-207-2160, jwarden@centerracoop.com.

To register as a rider for the event, visit your local Centerra Country Store and request a registration form, or simply register online HERE.
