EVENT: The Boilermaker 2015
EVENT DATE: Jul 12, 2015
By choosing to run the Boilermaker 5K or 15K Road Race or to participate in the Boilermaker Walk for Upstate Cerebral Palsy, you will be making miracles possible everyday for children and adults with disabilities. The vision of Upstate Cerebral Palsy is "Empowering People Through Exceptional Opportunities," and each day we work to provide children and adults with disabilities the opportunity to reach their fullest potential, whether it be taking a first step without a walker, learning how to play an adaptive sport, or saying "I love you" to mom or dad for the first time - These are the Everyday Miracles that we celebrate.
Upstate Cerebral Palsy has provided recreation services for decades. Our recreational horseback riding program has served individuals for more than 20 years and continues to have a waiting list due to the high demand from families in our area. In 2013, over 1,000 sessions were provided for individuals ranging in age from 4 to over 60. In 2014, we added an additional day of services and held more than 2,000 sessions during the year. Our staff includes licensed recreation and physical therapists, allowing us to now offer hippotherapy, along with grooming, carriage riding, vaulting and western riding.
Your support will provide the opportunity for even more children and adults to participate in our equine therapy program and benefit from this unique, life-changing experience!
