Horses Healing Heroes is a non-profit based out of Monroe, which houses homeless veterans during their transitional phase; as well as uses licensed Equine Therapy to help them work through their PSTD or TBI at a pace of their own readiness. Arleen Gibson is the founder, and it is on her property which this refuge is constructed.
The 2017 Horses Healing Heroes 5k is to raise funding for extra cabins to be completed so that she may house a greater number of veterans in need.
There is a $25 entrance fee which will go entirely to the Foundation towards their goal.
It is going to be a beautiful summer! Let's get on our feet to help a few of the veterans out there have a place to call home; and give them the sanctuary they need, to show we're grateful and support them while they get back on their feet!
