The Next InSTALLment

The launch of the public phase of our Growth with Miracles - The Next InSTALLment campaign was a fun, though very warm, event at the Miracles farm in early June. The 100 attendees were able to observe Charles and Rosalie in an adaptive riding session on Aussie and Don Pecos. Jackie Wallace shared a brief history of Miracles and Ted Abel, father of rider Seamus Abel, brought many to tears as he talked about what a difference interacting with horses has made for Seamus. The campaign goal is $750,000 and including the generous match from Lauren and Joe Crippes, this event raised over $50,000 bringing the total raised to $587,000!
