On average, there are 22 veteran suicides per day in the United States.  In an effort to raise awareness of this epidemic, EquiCenter will host Hoof-it For Heroes™.  Beginning November 8th, and continuing for the next 22 days, the EquiCenter invites you to complete 2.2 miles to raise awareness for the 22 veterans that commit suicide each day. By running, walking, horseback riding - or any other means you choose to be active - you will raise awareness of this crisis and help support a national pilot program that utilizes the powerful connection between horses and humans to help veterans heal.  Click on the article links below to learn more about Mission Mustang©

The EquiCenter is a therapeutic equestrian facility that offers a variety of programs to help veterans find a sense of peace and purpose in our supportive environment. Programs include Mission Mustang©, Heroes & Horses, and a variety of therapeutic horticulture and farming activities.  Learn more at www.equicenterny.org.

We will be hosting an inclusive in-person event to launch the 2.2 mile Hoof-it For Heroes™ beginning at 11:11 am on Sunday, November 8th at the EquiCenter in remembrance of when World War I came to an end at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month. In order to exceed social distancing guidelines, we will be offering 3 separate start times: 11:11am, 12:30pm, and 2:00pm. You can register to join us in person as space permits, or participate virtually wherever you are around the globe.

The cost to participate is $22 if registered by November 1st. Pricing for the in-person event increases on November 1st, so act fast! We will have post-event food from DiBella's and the opportunity to tour the ranch and meet our mustangs.
