Our 2nd annual Ride-A-Thon held on Saturday, July 28th turned out to be a great day!
Our teams for the event did an outstanding job raising funds in support of our program. We were able to utilize our online fundraising platform with GiveGrove for the first time and overall it was a positive experience, and most importantly we feel our supporters felt it was helpful and user friendly.
We had 6 teams of riders who enjoyed our half-mile outdoor track and completed an obstacle course set up with various challenges and for a range of riding levels. Instructors presented each rider with a champion ribbon as a way to celebrate each person and their accomplishments.
After a busy morning, we were able to sit back and relax together while enjoying grilled hot dogs (thanks to our favorite neighbor, Chef Ben) and baked goodies (thanks to one of our in-house bakers, Baker Chris). We have the best team of people. 🙂
The team who won our grand prize – Renew hoodies and a pancake breakfast at the barn with the horses – was Team William! William raised $700 on his online platform alone. Way to go! Great job to ALL of our riders and supporters who made the day fun, enjoyable, successful!
