Riding Centre lassos $118,500 grant

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

Wellington Halton Hills MPP Ted Arnott, along with Catharine Collins, a volunteer with the Ontario Trillium Foundation, 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.

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 Sunrise Executive Director Ann Caine. “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.

A leading grant institution in Canada, the Ontario Trillium Foundation strengthens the capacity of the voluntary sector through investments in community-based initiatives. An agency of the Government of Ontario, OTF builds healthy and vibrant communities. For more information about the organization and its grants, visit www.trilliumfoundation.org.
