November 7th | 5:00pm – 7:00pm :: Stand By Me Fundraiser for Special CHEERS
Special CHEERS (Children with Horses for Evaluation, Education, Rehabilitation and Socialization) presents its ninth annual Stand by Me fundraiser to support equine therapy programs and scholarships for children and adults with physical and intellectual challenges. On Nov. 7, guests will gather outdoors at the Special CHEERS expansive home on Clay Road to enjoy live music, food and drink tents, a silent auction and an open barn to meet the equine stars of Special CHEERS – all while observing social distancing guidelines.
“We are all facing extraordinary challenges on personal and global scales, but the needs of our special children and horses do not pause for a raging pandemic, says Fritzi Glover-Strowmatt, Founder and licensed Occupational Therapist. “Special CHEERS needs the help of the community to be able to continue our life-changing equine therapy programs for so many families.”
Since 2002, the loving and nurturing staff at Special CHEERS has provided more than 800 Houston-area children with vital therapeutic services including 3600 scheduled hippotherapy and occupational therapy visits, listening intensives and summer camps annually. Special CHEERS uses rescued horses of all sizes and temperaments to match the needs of our children and young adults.
