Here is what people are saying about LifeStriders in 2014:
All the people, whether workers or volunteers, are so giving of their time and energy - it's contagious. This is a great way to enrich your senior years. - Sue Schneider, Volunteer
For me to explain how it feels to help a child or adult, ride or work with a horse... I find it very hard to explain... but when you see the connection between a rider and the horse, and then the volunteers that work with them... it is pretty amazing. -Becky Manke, Trevor’s Mom and a Volunteer
LifeStriders staff and volunteers continuously challenge my son to reach his potential: physically, cognitively, and emotionally. As a mother, it is inspiring to watch these transformations unfold in my son. - Lucy Valle, Mario’s Mom
Dear Friends of LifeStriders, December 9, 2014
Reflecting back on everything accomplished in 2014 brings us such joy at this time of year, and we are so proud of what LifeStriders is doing for its community and what it has come to mean to the families that we serve.
On the eve of our 10th year anniversary as an organization, LifeStriders provided over 4200 therapeutic riding lessons in 2014, and 670 social skills classes, aided by 15,000 volunteer hours, and your financial support. The numbers are impressive, but the impact you are having on people’s lives in our community is forever lasting, and we get to hear it every day from people like Becky, Lucy, and Sue.
2015 is looking to be a very exciting year with additional LifeStriders programming, the beginning of a LifeStriders endowment fund, and an expanded role in serving more inner-city youth, seniors and veterans in Milwaukee County in conjunction with the Milwaukee Mounted Police Department.
During this season of giving and for all the families who are caring for someone with a special need, please consider making a tax deductible donation to LifeStriders Therapeutic Riding Center (501c3). LifeStriders is debt free, and the organization and facilities are 100% community owned. 100% of your donation will go towards enabling the creative, compassionate, professional and affordable therapeutic programming at LifeStriders. Happy Holidays and thank you so much for your continued support.
