ATLANTA — Cindy “Rodeo” Steedle is trading her cowboy boots for racing shoes.

The reality TV star, famous for being on “Rock of Love,” is helping plan a fundraiser for CURE Childhood Cancer, an Atlanta-based nonprofit cancer research foundation.

On Nov. 30, the Rally for CURE event, open to the public, will hold a rally of cars that kicks off their engines at Ferrari Maserati Atlanta, 11875 Alpharetta Highway in Roswell. Participants will enjoy breakfast at 8 a.m. and then caravan to Atlanta Motorsports Park in Dawsonville for more racing fun.

“It’s great that we’re pulling together with different people who really want to help,” Steedle said. “You never know what their families are going through with this horrible disease. We can help them heal, and I want to help the children going through diagnosis.

“We want to find a cure for cancer,” Steedle said, event organizer Taste of Speed’s vice president of strategic planning.

Jeff Beal, executive producer of Taste of Speed, said that all the money will go to the CURE charity.

Once rally participants make it to the Dawsonville-based Atlanta Motorsports Park, they will be able to go around the track, enjoy lunch and go home with a goody bag. The event cost $75 per person or $125 for two.

“They don’t have to be exotic cars,” Beal said. “We’re trying to bring awareness to CURE.”
