Dear Friends of LifeStriders,
With the holidays upon us and gratitude in our hearts, we are honored to ask for your generous support of LifeStriders.
For 10 years, LifeStriders has transformed the lives of thousands of people with special needs, including adults, senior citizens, veterans and children. Liam is one of these children, and his mom agrees that miracles happen here:
“We came to LifeStriders seeking therapeutic riding for our son to help with his muscle coordination, his focus, and impulsivity challenges. After just a few months of riding, his core strength noticeably increased so that he was able to sit still in a chair for 20 minutes for the first time, and he now takes full strides, no more tiptoe walking! We are also seeing better concentration and more determination in school.
The staff has worked so well in identifying his challenges and creating a riding plan perfectly catered to him. Perhaps best of all is the simple joy of watching his face light up as soon as we walk into the barn. He adores being here. The connection and love he has with the calm and steady horses, the bright and encouraging staff, and the wonderful volunteers has impacted all of us.” – Ana Nicholson
While our LifeStriders services are rooted in physical, occupational and cognitive behavioral therapy, we go far beyond traditional approaches because the human-horse connection we offer is transformative and inspiring. Liam is just one of our many precious success stories.
This holiday season, your continued financial support will allow us to serve even more people with our compassion and individualized care. A generous gift of $50, $100, or $250 – or the amount that works best for you – is deeply appreciated and will keep the miracles coming for those who need them the most.
Thanks to you, everyone at LifeStriders will ring in the new year with a sense of hope. We appreciate your generosity – it has never been more important to us!
With gratitude and warmest wishes,
Executive Director M.S., LPC
