Ms. Lili Kellogg, executive director of SIRE, Houston’s Therapeutic Equestrian Centers, is pleased to announce receipt of a $20,000 grant from the George Foundation to support therapeutic horseback riding for Fort Bend County residents.
The George Foundation endeavors to support, strengthen and empower Fort Bend families through community-based services that meet the needs and values of the community. Ms. Kellogg thanks the foundation, saying, “We are so blessed to have the continued support of the George Foundation. It’s because of the generosity of the George Foundation and others that we are able to offer services that change the lives of persons with disabilities and their families.”
SIRE also relies upon individuals to support its programs. Fast approaching is one such opportunity for individual support, the CGG Veritas 20th Annual Saddle Up! for SIRE Ride-a-thon, Saturday October 13th.
Those interested can sign up to ride, gather pledges, or support SIRE clients who are doing the same. 7iL Trails in Cat Spring, Texas is donating their facility for a remarkable 12th time. 7iL has 40 miles of equestrian trails through 1,100 gently rolling acres. All participants will enjoy riding through the rolling pastures of 7iL Trails, eating mouth-watering barbeque, and listening to live music.
