Drive to Ride

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 - Sunday, March 4, 2018 | The Shea Center

The Drive to Ride campaign is a way to support our clients and riding programs. This campaign is unique in that it gives everyone an opportunity to be a part of a “Team” and prizes will be offered for all those who participate! Every donation of any size, can make an impact on the lives of our clients and their families. The Shea Center has been responding to the needs of people with disabilities for almost four decades. The demand for our therapy services and the opportunity to serve our community continues to grow each year.

Your donation makes it possible to continue to keep these programs available and affordable. With your help, we can reach our goal of $145,000 and continue to play a key role in the lives of our clients, their development, and their families. Funds raised through Drive to Ride are used for priority programs, financial aid for clients, and the care of The Shea Center horses.
