At our July 2 meeting, Ms. Christine Volkmer, Director of Community Engagement joined us to describe Equest, a therapeutic riding organization.  Here is a little About Equest:
Founded in 1981, Equest provides equine assisted learning, therapies and counseling to children and adults with physical, cognitive, sensory, coping and learning disabilities and veterans with adjustment challenges. The services provided include physical and occupational therapy, equine facilitated counseling and equine assisted learning, therapeutic carriage driving, therapeutic horsemanship and competition. With the help of 30 therapy horses, eight instructors, four therapists, three counselors, and 700 volunteers, lives are changed for more than 2,000 served annually. Equest was the first PATH International Premier Accredited Center in Texas and remains one of the largest in the country. Equest offers an engaging volunteer program that provides 30,000 hours of direct program service opportunities each year.
About Equest Hooves for Heroes
Through equine-assisted activities and therapies, Equest’s Hooves for Heroes program helps veterans and their families transition from military to civilian life and excel as community members, neighbors, and civic leaders. The individually tailored programs include mental health counseling, physical and occupational therapy, therapeutic horsemanship, carriage driving and more. Since its founding in 2012, Hooves for Heroes has helped more than 1,500 veterans and military family members at no cost, thanks to generous grant funding, charitable donations, and underwriting.
We are happy to announce our merger with the Trinity Club of Dallas and welcome them into the Rotary Club of Dallas-Uptown.
During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.

Rotary's 35,000 clubs carry out sustainable service projects that support our six causes: Promoting peace, providing clean water, saving mothers & children, supporting education, growing local economies, and fighting disease.

Also, the support from you and your fellow Rotarians have helped wipe out 99.9 percent of all polio cases. For more information on the Rotary Foundation, go here.
