Thank you for the tremendous support for the Canuck Place Children's Hospice hosted by the Orange Hippos, AKA Emmett. $3775 was raised and this amount was tripled by corporate donors. The thermometer should have been demolished as the goal was $1000 - but it proved to be very flexible.
Emmett also is sharing his hippotherapy videos with Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association to present at their Open House. Emmett will continue with Hippotherapy after the holidays. He already has a supply of carrots for his horse, Fiona. (and by his horse, we mean the horse that he rides when he is at a session. Emmett does not have his own horse!)
Emmett has been out at soccer again - and it is great to see how his skill has improved over the fall. We also were able to test out the "new to us" power chair. Emmett gave it two thumbs up. Huge thanks to Sportability BC for making this time and space available!
We hope that you have a very Merry Christmas. Emmett's special project was gifted to Lynne, who is not only one of the donors to the Canuck Place fundraiser, but she's also one of the volunteers at hippotherapy.
