Walk so they can ride
This Saturday is March 1. Spring can’t come soon enough for me this year. And, speaking of Saturday, relieve your cabin fever by joining the Winter Walk-A-Thon sponsored by Exceptional Equestrians Unlimited at 11 a.m. Saturday.
Participants will walk laps at EEU’s quarter-mile indoor (unheated) track at the EEU Barn on the south side of 61st Avenue just west of Wisconsin Street. As part of this fun experience, meet the horses and make new friends. There will be refreshments and a few surprises to make things more interesting!
Suggested donation is $15. Participants are encouraged to ask friends and family to pledge an amount for each lap walked or to make a donation. Registration and sponsorship forms are available from participating Hobart merchants, EEU board members or by contacting Jane Fuller at (219) 942-0076 or email@example.com.
The mission of EEU is to provide educational and therapeutic horseback riding activities to those with special needs for improved quality of life.
