Celebrated alongside America's premier horse race event of the year - the Kentucky Derby - Derby Day raises money to benefit Shepherd Center's Therapeutic Recreation Program, which coordinates and adapts leisure activities for patients with catastrophic injuries and neurological diseases.
Created as a fundraising and support organization for Shepherd Center, the Junior Committee plans year-round for Derby Day. To date, the Junior Committee has contributed more than $3.5 million toward the wide variety of therapeutic recreation projects and other programs benefiting Shepherd Center’s patients.
Please help us in continuing to raise the funds necessary to give these amazing patients the care they need and deserve. Every dollar donated goes directly to the Shepherd Center and its Therapeutic Recreation program.
