We are proud to announce this year's beneficiary is Equine Rescue and Rehabilitation, Inc. (ERRI). ERRI is a non-profit program dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of unwanted, abused and neglected horses. Did you know that it costs upwards of $800 per month to save and rehabilitate one horse that is on its way to slaughter? ERRI currently has 8 horses in its program! As an all-volunteer organization that has been rescuing and rehabilitating horses in the area since 1994, funding is always crucial. By participating in this 5K, you're helping to raise lifesaving funds to rehabilitate the program's current horses and save even more in 2018.
