2020 Therapy Horse Derby
PBJ Connections has a goal of raising $80,000 through the HHHKO Therapy Horse Derby. Hitting this goal is critical to our mission, as this event normally funds about a quarter of our annual budget. Since our 13th Annual Helping Horses Help Kids Charity Event cannot be held in person due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are asking you to help us move our event to a fun and exciting virtual platform. We encourage you to form a team around one of our therapy animals, with each team having a goal of raising a minimum of $2,500. When we all work together, you will be surprised how you can hit, or even surpass, your goal! You can start fundraising anytime, but we will have an official kick-off Virtual ‘Live’ Event on October 2, 2020. The event will end with a final ceremony in a Virtual ‘Live’ format on December 28, 2020.
Where the Money Goes
PBJ Connections provides professional behavioral health therapy to children, adults and families through horses, counseling and nature. We commit to serving all who need mental health services, regardless of their ability to pay. As a locally operated non-profit, nearly all funds raised go directly to providing programming. The money raised will support the following programs. The teams are named for our therapy animals to generate a fun “horse race” atmosphere but the animals themselves do not receive the funding as they are already cared for by private owners!
