BENEFITING: CENTAUR STRIDE INC
EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2013
I want to thank everyone who has helped over the past 20 some years to make Centaur Stride possible. There are such possibilities at Centaur Stride, limited only by funding. This is a time when we need to pull together to keep what we have. Programs are being cut all over. And insurance companies approval for therapies and school therapies are being cut even more. Centaur Stride is more important now than ever. Please visit our center and watch the programs in action. You'll be hooked, as I am!
Please help me to help others. I am on “Team Whiskey”. We have 15 therapy horses. I chose Whiskey, who is going on 27. He is still my favorite. He is so smart, and without him, Centaur Stride would not be here. He was our first therapy horse and he taught all the other horses what the instructors could not teach horses (what only others horses can teach other horses). I can’t imagine Whiskey not being a huge part of our programs. I never figured time into the picture!
It costs about $3500 per horse, per year. We cannot get grants for operating expenses. We need to raise the money for operating expenses. We have no paid administration staff. We have two new programs developed and waiting to start and both are free to the targeted population. That means more expenses with no income- and more fundraising. Please help us if you can. Even small amounts add up. If you do not want to donate online (which is totally safe through this site), then please send a check made out to Centaur Stride, PO Box 174, Westfield, NY 14787. Please join us for the walk-a-thon on Mar 17th at the Chautauqua Mall (1:30 in front of Old Navy). Thank you everyone for helping Centaur Stride!
