Help make a difference in the life of a child with special needs by supporting Special Strides and The Steven Werthan Memorial Fund.
"Life isn't about what you have; it's about what you have to give."
Special Strides is a non-profit organization located at Congress Hill Farm in Monroe, NJ. At Special Strides a therapist along with the power of the horse help improve the lives of children with physical and developmental disabilities.
Special Strides will always be a place that is close to our hearts. When Dylan began attending Special Strides, prior to his third birthday, he was not yet walking. With the help of extremely talented therapists and horses Dylan is not only walking- he is running, jumping, and climbing in playgrounds. Special Strides is a unique place where therapy has become a fun experience for Dylan. He loves "going to the farm" and taking care of and riding his horses. His siblings beg to come with him ! To Dylan, hippotherapy is never work. While Dylan is enjoying time with his therapists and horses, he has no idea that he is improving his balance and strengthening his muscles. Special Strides has become a place that our whole family has come to love. We are grateful for all of the skills Dylan has learned through this amazing program
Special Strides' largest fundraiser of the year is fast approaching, the Annual Barn Benefit Dance on Saturday, October 16th. All proceeds go to benefit Special Strides and the Steven Werthan Memorial Schlarship Fund. Here is how you can help make a difference in the life of a child with special needs. I am asking you to please make a pledge to help us reach our goal to raise a minimum of $500.00.
If you are interested just check off the amount you are comfortable donating and follow the steps.
Thank you so much for your support and generosity!
