Mane in Heaven Trot-a-Thon 5K

About This Activity

Mane In Heaven is a recognized 501©(3)non-profit organization that provides therapeutic benefits to disabled and able-bodied children and adults through animal-assisted activity and therapy visits with miniature horses leading to improved outcomes of physical, mental and emotional well-being.
We do not charge for visits with our registered miniature therapy horses but we can’t fulfill our mission or provide visits without donations. We are funded solely by people who believe in the therapeutic benefits of animal-assisted activity and therapy visits which lead to improved outcomes of physical, mental and emotional well-being…people like YOU! 

This 5K fund raising event is to raise funds to help pay for farrier/hoof trims (cost $50), food and board ($500),  and finally a new trailer to call their own ($10,000). Thank you for joining our 5K. Your donations will be going to the above needs/costs of our Minis.
