Walk-Wheel & Ride-A-Thon

 

RVR's Annual Walk-Wheel and Ride-A-Thon raises funds to keep our services affordable for the families we serve. This grassroots campaign is unique in that it gives everyone an opportunity to participate with a gift of any size or by sharing their personal RVR story and inviting friends and family to make donations to RVR.  Our thanks to eveyone who participated in this event or donated to support our riders and drivers!

RVR has been responding to the needs of people with disabilities for over 20 years. The demand for our equine-assisted services and the opportunity to serve our community continues to grow each year. Lesson fees cover only 40% of the organization’s operating expenses.  The remaining funds are received through generous donations and fundraising events. Every donation makes an impact on the lives of our participants and their families.

 

It's not too late to support our mission by giving to this fundraising campaign!  Donate online or mail your gift to: River Valley Riders, 8362 Tamarack Village, Suite 119-440, Woodbury, MN 55125. 


We thank everyone who donated or participated at our fundraising event at Lake Elmo Park Reserve on September 10th.  Fifteen riders saddled up their horses for an exciting 8-mile ride and eighteen people grabbed their walking shoes or wheels for a scenic 3-mile walk/wheel on the beautiful trails by the lake and through the park's woods and fields.   We are grateful for the team of volunteers who helped make this event a success!  Enjoy these photos of the 2022 event!
