The Boar Swamp Campdraft took place last month, from November 22 to November 24. The popular event was held at the McLarty family’s Blythewood farm near Pinjarra, with funds raised going towards CLCRF.
Campdrafting is a uniquely Australian sport that dates back to the late 1800s and involves a horse and a rider working cattle for the coveted title of the best stockhorse and rider.
The Boar Swamp Campdraft Club have been supporting the Foundation for a number of years now and we couldn’t be more grateful for their wonderful efforts!
This year, not only did the club pledge $3500 for the Foundation, but campdrafter Jacob Walmsley also kindly offered his face to raise extra funds. Thanks to the wonderful generosity of the crowd, Jacob was able to raise an additional $4349.35 and is now sporting a bad mullet, no eyebrows, half a beard and a bald crown.
That’s an incredible total of $7,849.35 going towards childhood cancer research!
We would like to congratulate the organisers on another successful campdraft event, as well as all of the competitors and winners. We sincerely appreciate the Boar Swamp Campdraft Club’s ongoing support and contribution to our cause. We look forward to continuing this relationship well into the future!
