Marion Therapeutic Riding Association is excited to announce our first Virtual Event MTRA 5K Gallop! We will be hosting a Virtual 5K promoting health and wellness with proceeds benefiting Marion Therapeutic Riding Association programming. Participants will be able to register beginning September 4, 2020, and they have all the way until October 3, 2020 to complete their 5K.
Participants can walk, run, skip, ride, bike, swim, paddle, dance, prance, whatever way they choose so long as they go the distance! People may participate on their own or with family and friends, and we can have fun while maintaining our social distance and well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic! Everyone participating will receive a uniquely designed medal, and they will have a chance to purchase a shirt at registration if interested. A $27 donation collected at registration will aid MTRA in helping create opportunities and services to clients in Marion and surrounding counties!
For over 35 years, MTRA has provided equine assisted learning and therapeutic riding to people ages 4 to over 80 years of age. We have multiple programs for cognitively, physically and emotionally challenged individuals. Our goal is to have at least 1,000 participants which will help move up to 20 people off of our waiting list! We hope you will consider joining us for this fun challenge!
