HelpKidsPlaySports.org (HKPS) made a 3rd donation of $500 to the Center for Horsemanship And Personal Success (CHAPS) to help waive participation fees for underfunded local youth in need of equine therapy.
CHAPS, based in Sanford, FL, is a 501c(3) non-profit charitable organization dedicated to educating, empowering and enriching the community through therapeutic riding programs for youth."Therapeutic horseback riding is the use of horses and equine-assisted activities in order to achieve goals that enhance physical, emotional, social, cognitive, behavioral and educational skills for people who have disabilities," stated Lori Johnson, a PATH Certified Riding Instructor at CHAPS. For more information on the program, go to www.chapscenter.com.
The donation is made possible by supporters of HKPS--donations like these are a result of their generosity and support.
