CTRA's major annual fundraiser is underway! Our annual Ride-a-Thon event challenges participants, families, friends, volunteers, and supporters to raise pledges in support of their favorite therapy horse! As pledges are counted towards each therapy horse, the team advances on our steeplechase board - until one horse is declared the winner!
This year, in celebration of Canada’s 150, we hope to raise $100 for each of our program’s 150 annual participants. This goal of $15,000 would provide full care (feed/hay, horseshoes, vet costs) for 5 therapy horses over an entire year!
This event includes:
Ride-a-Thon week - June 17 -23: Participants will tackle a special obstacle course during their regular lessons. Adapted vaulters can also look forward to some special activities.
Our annual Celebration Picnic: Participants, families/friends, & volunteers are encouraged to join us Saturday June 24th from 2-4pm at the CTRA facility to announce the Ride-a-Thon winners, enjoy family-friendly activities, and celebrate in the sun!
