The Horse Boy Team was honored to be invited to attend Maggie's Hope Fox Fit weekend in the last few days.
Background to Maggie's Hope
Since the day her niece Maggie was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, FOX News Anchor Loriana Hernandez has been on a mission to help Maggie and the thousands of other kids get the treatments they need. “Maggie’s Hope” is designed to help kids like Maggie and their families with funding for alternative treatments, gluten free/casein free foods, school advocates, and other therapies not covered by insurance.
The event The weekend was kickstarted with a Lakeside “Surf & Turf Gala” at the Rough Hollow Yacht Club & Marina which was a beautiful setting for a truly fabulous evening.
The next morning supporters of Maggie's Hope came back to the yacht club for a fitness event which included running, walking or cycling various distances to raise money and awareness for autism. Two of our horses (Clue & Betsy) came with us to the event and thoroughly enjoyed welcoming athletes at the finish line and entertaining (and quite frankly being loved on) by all the kids who attended the event.
We very much look forward to working with Maggie's Hope in the future in our joint mission to raise autism awareness.
