WESTMINSTER, SC (FOX CAROLINA) – In Westminster, people gathered for an annual benefit to help fight childhood cancer.
The Skyla Strong Barrel Race and Breakaway Roping event kicked off Friday at the Michael Hare Memorial Arena.
The events help raise money to help children fight cancer. It is named after Skyla, a third-grader who bravely fought leukemia between 2013 and 2016 before passing away.
Her family is now on a mission to bring smiles to other child patients.
“We have been so supported by our community and all different corners and our church, and our family and our friends,” said Shannon Forcier, Skyla’s mother. “So it just means a lot to see them do this in honor of Skyla to help these other families, and we always say, ‘Glory be to God. “Like He just got His people here and we all just work together to love one another.”
The event also takes place on Saturdays.
