PATH International and ACTHA set goal to hold 1,000 ACTHA Events During March 2014

At their annual international conference in Orlando Florida last week, The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) announced to its 850 North American Centers plans to embark on their largest fund raising project ever. In partnership with The American Competitive Trail Horse Association (ACTHA), PATH Int’l hopes to raise $1,000,000 for its centers throughout the month of March 2014, with a special focus on the weekend of March 15-16, 2014.

March 2014 will be a very special month for those families in need of physical and emotional therapeutic help that uniquely the horse/human connection can give. Plans include hosting approximately 1,000 ACTHA events throughout North America in this month. Each of PATH International’s Centers will be invited to partake and share in the fun and the funding.

“Getting increased national awareness to our cause and as importantly local awareness in the 850 communities we currently serve on a non profit basis is always an important part of fulfilling our mission. Local volunteers are critical to the daily completion of our mission.That mission is changing and enriching lives by promoting excellence in equine-assisted activities and therapies.” Kay Green, PATH Int’l CEO.
