Flair LLC Joins WNFR Barrel Racer Nancy Hunter in an Effort to End Childhood Cancer
Flair LLC, maker of the FLAIR® Equine Nasal Strip, has joined forces with Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (WNFR) Barrel Racer Nancy Hunter, in the WNFR Glitter Like Gold For The Kids campaign — an effort to raise awareness of childhood cancer and spur donations that fuel life-saving research and clinical trials. One of the direct beneficiaries of this joint fundraising effort will be St Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis Tennessee.
In order to focus attention on Nancy Hunter’s WNFR fundraising efforts, Flair has created a special Glitter Like Gold For The Kids limited edition FLAIR Strip and will make these beautiful FLAIR Strips available to every Barrel Racer who competes in the year-end WNFR event in Las Vegas, Nevada, on December 5, 2015.
In addition to encouraging direct donation, Nancy Hunter will raise funds through a silent auction hosted on the NFR Glitter Like Gold Facebook Page. Some of the items available in the auction include limited edition hats, shirts, and the special edition For the Kids FLAIR Strips, autographed by the top 15 Barrel Racers in the world.

Nancy Hunter, three time Houston Rodeo Champion Barrel Racer, and two-time WNFR Qualifying Barrel Racer whose son Kolton is a childhood cancer survivor, said about teaming up with Flair LLC, “FLAIR Strip’s President Jim Chiapetta contacted me about my GLITTER LIKE GOLD FOR KIDS campaign at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. On December 5, 2015, I will be wearing a specially designed shirt, hat and FLAIR Strip — all to bring awareness to Childhood Cancer and the need for research and cures. Jim not only stepped up to provide a custom FLAIR Strip all in gold with little hand prints and has made a $1000 donation to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Every dollar helps save our kids. Thank you FLAIR Strips and company.”
Said Flair LLC (“Flair”) President Jim Chiapetta DVM JD, “We admire Nancy Hunter’s GLITTER LIKE GOLD FOR KIDS campaign and the effort she is making to raise awareness of childhood cancer. Thousands of children and their families face this devastating diagnosis each year. St Jude Children’s Research Hospital are leaders in groundbreaking research, spearheading new avenues of inquiry, and promoting global understanding of treatments for childhood diseases. Without innovative technologies and ambitious research programs, improved childhood cancer survival rates would not happen. Flair is committed to supporting quality science and innovation and is proud to join Nancy Hunter and St. Jude in the fight against childhood cancer.”
