All FORE A Very Good Cause
This year, Endurance IT was a very proud sponsor of the 2020 EQUI-KIDS’ fun-in-the-sun themed annual Andrew Schliske Memorial golf tournament. Held at Broad Bay Country Club on Friday, August 14th, a large gathering of golfers teed-up to raise money to support EQUI-KIDS and the great work they do every day. The golfers were encouraged to show their summer spirit by wearing their favorite beach wear (Hawaiian shirt, swim trunks, etc.). Golf carts were decorated with Hawaiian leis and one was even draped with an American flag. The spirit of fun was in the air and this lively group of do-gooders, including both golfers and sponsors, was on par.
If you’re unfamiliar, EQUI-KIDS is a therapeutic horseback riding facility that was founded in 1989 to provide, promote and support equine-assisted activities for individuals with mentally, physically, emotionally, socially or learning-disabling conditions. They serve both children and adults, ages five and up, including those with disabilities such as Down syndrome, autism, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, amputation, mental and physical disabilities, attention deficit disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and more.
In 2010, they launched the EQUI-VETS service program to offer physical and mental healing through equine activities for armed service members wounded in the line of duty, including both active duty and veterans. Their services are offered free of charge for veterans and at a deeply discounted rate for all other riders. They never turn anyone away who would benefit from their services and they even offer scholarships to those facing financial hardship.
A great organization that does a lot of good for both adults and kids in the Hampton Roads area, EQUI-KIDS welcomes donations. If you would like to support EQUI-KIDS.org, click here.
