Therapeutic Riding Program members taking part in Creston community complex triathlon

Web Lead

Spring has sprung and team Therapeutic Riding Program (Team TRP) has started spring training for the Creston and District Community Complex’s Just Tri-It Triathlon on June 1.

Last year was their first attempt at the triathlon. Team TRP entered and solicited sponsors to raise funds to help pay for the purchase of Cupcake, the Therapeutic Riding Program’s newest horse at the time. Team TRP consisted of Christine (500-metre swim), Todd (13-kilometre cycle) and Avis (five-kilometre run). They raised $2,000, finished first in their division and all had an adrenaline rush doing it.

This year, team TRP is racing to raise funds to help pay for Max, the Therapeutic Riding Program’s latest addition to the herd, who is much needed after the retirement of Inga, Blue, and Salty last fall. We would like to enter more teams this year to race for the Creston and District Society for Community Living Therapeutic Riding Program.

If you would like to acquire sponsors and compete for Max’s benefit, help as a sponsor, or really help fund raise by collecting your own sheet of sponsors for the existing TRP team, please contact Avis Hutchinson at skeeterspals@hotmail.com or Christine Ross at christineross@theeastshore.net.

Learn more about Max on the program’s Facebook page.
