The Flanigan kids are excited to be lacing up their sneakers and hitting the pavement for Team Mirabelle at The Run for Love to support The Lovelane Therapeutic Horseback Riding Program. Mirabelle is such a brave, smart and totally adorable three-year-old student who makes every Monday my favorite day of the week! Please consider a donation in any amount for this wonderful program which has such a dramatic impact on the physical and cognitive development of children with special needs.
From Mirabelle's mom:
"Lovelane has meant the world to our family. Mirabelle adores riding—she looks forward to it every week and although Trevor is her favorite, she loves Daisy and Doc as well. However, when I ask her who she is going to ride, she often laughs hysterically and says “QUINN!” The thought of my little peanut on that giant horse *is* quite funny.
There are many things that we appreciate about Lovelane. Mirabelle has so many doctors and therapy appointments but when we come to Lovelane, only we know that it is therapeutic. Mirabelle thinks she’s only there to have fun—which is just how we like it. Our home is now full of horses and horse toys; they make her so happy. Four years ago, if you told me that I would have a house full of horse toys, I would not have believed you but now it makes me happy, too.
Michael and I love connecting with other Lovelane families. The highlight of my week is watching Mirabelle ride while I talk with another mom in the family room. But, most importantly, we love what riding is doing for Mirabelle’s body. She is getting stronger and stronger. We are so grateful!"
Thank you in advance for all donations large and small - every dollar makes a difference!!!
