GAIT Therapeutic Riding Center (GAIT TRC) will participate in NEPA Gives—a one-day online giving extravaganza that’s all about giving back to the community.
For 24 hours—from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59:59 p.m.—on Friday, June 5, 2020, donors may make secure donations to GAIT TRC and other local nonprofits through the NEPA Gives online platform (www.nepagives.org). Donations will be enhanced with bonus funds provided by NEPA Gives sponsors, making donor dollars stretch further. If you are interested in participating, GAIT TRC asks that you mark your calendar and join the excitement on June 5th.
The past several months have been difficult for GAIT TRC. Without income from classes, workshops, and events, they have had to rely on the generosity of others to continue caring for their herd of ten specially-trained horses.
Under normal circumstances, GAIT TRC’s program participants would be riding and working with the horses, learning through the visual, auditory, and tactile methods that are unique to equine-assisted environments. GAIT welcomes people of all ages with cognitive, emotional, physical, and/or behavioral challenges.
