What is Drive 2 Ride?
Drive 2 Ride is an online fundraising campaign, led by our HETRA families and riders. All funds raised support the Participant Sponsorship Fund. HETRA families also earn free sessions as they reach personal fundraising goals.
Last year, HETRA families raised an astounding $77,263! Our Goal for 2017: $80,000!
Together . . we can do it!
Did you know: The average cost is $160 each time a participant mounts a horse for their weekly riding session. Our families, however pay only a fraction of that cost ($35-$60).
How do we do it? Through Drive 2 ride and additional funds raised throughout the year that support the Participant Sponsorship Fund, HETRA is able to subsidize the expense of each riding session by $100-$130 in order to keep our services affordable for all HETRA families. HETRA also provides confidential scholarships for families in greater need. We do it TOGETHER with your help!
For an individual with a disability, many hours can be spent indoors in clinical, medical settings each week working on motor control, balance and strength.
Imagine the difference receiving
therapy outdoors or in a barn environment . . .
all while sitting on a 1,300 lb. horse!
Every time a participant mounts a horse, 30 minutes . . . once a week, they are receiving benefits such as improved core strength, balance, coordination, cognitive development and self esteem. Often times over a relatively short period of time, the results can have a profound impact on their quality of life.
Thank you for your donation and making a difference in the lives of children and adults with disabilities.
