of $7,500 Raised
Rebecca Brain


On April 16, 2018 I will be running my first ever Boston Marathon! I was fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to run and raise money for Ironstone Farm in Andover, Ma.

Ironstone Farm uses the power of horseback riding and the environment of a farm to combine several therapies into one highly effective experience. Top doctors and medical institutions refer clients to Ironstone because of its success.

Children with special needs learn to walk. Some people who did not speak before, begin speaking.

Riding a horse simulates people’s normal walking movements, encouraging strengthened trunk control, improved balance and coordination, normalized muscle tone and increased stamina. Doctors refer a variety of clients, including those on the autism spectrum, because it leads to improved social interactions.

Coming to the 19-acre horse farm, rather than an impersonal clinic, makes therapy a “want to” event rather than a “have to” session.

Additional therapeutic, arts and educational programs improve the lives of others, such as combat veterans who have experienced trauma, survivors of cancer, teens at risk and elders with memory issues.

Each week, about 200 volunteers support these programs because they know their donated work changes lives.

Please help and support me in my journey to raise money for this amazing cause. A donation of any amount will be a huge help to my fundraising goal. You will not only be benefiting me but hundreds of other people who rely on these horses! 

Thank you!
