Falllen Brothers Poker Run (# 10434)22-Aug-2009
(Saturday)1715 Creek Rd, West Bend, WI
Annual run sponsored by a committee made up of family and friends of John "Cowboy" Dachs, Johnny Schmidt, Scott "Hoser" Taft,Jamie Nehrbass, John "Drifter" Berger and Michael "Rebel" Medinger. Portion of proceeds to benefit s.p.i.r.i.t. (Special People in Riding Therapy) Riders of Fond du Lac, WI, Equine Therapy for Children with Disabilities. Last year's proceeds will benefit Rides and Reins Therapeutic Horsemanship Center in Slinger, Wi in the amount of $450. The beneficiary will change from year to year so that we can help as many children as possible. These kids may not otherwise get the opportunity to ride. Equine therapy is beneficial on many different levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Money donated to ranches such as this can be used for anything from hay for the horses, vet bills, scholarships for the children (like gift certificates for riding time) to maintenance and tack supplies. I personally know a child who rode in one of the other local ranches and saw how powerful it was that he was able to get out of his wheelchair and on to a horse. The equipment needed to ensure the safety of the kids is expensive. I had the opportunity to speak with the owners of one of the ranches in my area and heard stories of kids whose attitude and outlook on life improved drastically because of the chance to ride a horse. If you are unable to attend our event please look up Equine Therapy Ranches in your area and consider sharing some of what you have been blessed with, many of these kids rely on donations to be able to ride. Some places may need volunteers as well.
