Sunrise riding centre gets $118,500 OTF grant

PUSLINCH TWP. - With the last week of Camp Sun­rise’s summer program coming to an end, the staff, volunteers, participants, and parents gath­ered to celebrate some good news for the future of this popu­lar program.


Wellington Halton Hills MPP Ted Arnott, along with Catharine Collins, a volunteer with the Ontario Trillium Foun­dation (OTF), formally con­gratu­lated the Sunrise Thera­peutic Riding and Learning Centre, a registered charity, on re­ceiving a three-year, $118,500 grant to help continue to build for the future.

"We want to thank the Trillium Foundation for recog­nizing and supporting the unique programming at Sunrise Therapeutic Riding and Learn­ing Centre," Arnott said. "Sun­rise staff, volunteers and fam­ilies deserve congratula­tions as well."

Funds from the grant will be used by Sunrise to hire a child and youth recreation co­ordi­nator as well as to help with the costs of buying new equipment and promotional materials.

“Our programs have made a positive difference in the lives of hundreds of riders and their families over the 28 years,” said Ann Caine, executive dir­ector. “Empowerment and en­couragement are not only words at Sunrise; they are an integral part of our success.”

Camp Sunrise has been of­fering an inclusive camp ex­perience for children of all abi­lities, for the past 20 years. The therapeutic riding and recre­ation programs have been available for the children and youth of Wellington County and surrounding communities for almost 30 years.

The Ontario Trillium Foun­dation uses profits from casinos and slots to endow private sector works such as Sunrise.
