It is often said that the grass is greener where you water it. Not only is it greener, but it is also richer and more full of life. Grass that is not cared for withers and dies, but grass that is maintained and manicured is full of growth and is always making progress.
Progress is something that we are constantly striving to achieve at CowboyThon, and what better color to represent progress than the color of the fourth Olympic ring. Abundant in nature, green is the color of growth and life. It represents renewal and health. It is ever present and constantly advancing. For example, many species of trees can live for hundreds of years, growing everyday and constantly making progress. This is the kind of growth that we want to see in CowboyThon.
At CowboyThon, we have been watering the grass for several years, and we have no intentions of stopping. CowboyThon recognizes the impact that Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals make through research, training, care and treatment. Over the past five years, CowboyThon has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to contribute to this progress. This year, our sixth year of contributing to CMNH, CowboyThon aims to make more growth than ever.
More often then not, people use the phrase “going green” with the insinuation that they intend to simply maintain the green that they see around them. This year, we don’t just aim to maintain, but to advance. We are tilling the soil, planting the seeds, and watering the grass. So let’s make this a year of continual progress. Let’s go green FTK.
