28th Annual Victory Gallop
Please join us as we celebrate the upcoming 28th Annual Victory Gallop to be held on April 6, 2013 at the historic Hyatt at The Bellevue. We are pleased to introduce this year's Co-Chairs, Victoria and Lance McCue of West Chester. Victoria and Lance have been loyal, supportive members of the Thorncroft family for several years and we are honored to have them Co-Chair our spectacular gala. The Victory Gallop is Thorncroft's most celebrated and successful fundraising event generating nearly $160,000 annually for our therapeutic riding programs.
Thorncroft has earned a worldwide reputation for helping children and adults with special needs such as autism, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injuries and other physical, mental and emotional challenges. Since 1969, Thorncroft and it's founder, Saunders Dixon, have been recognized as forerunners in the field of therapeutic riding. Many of our riders require financial assistance to participate in our riding programs. The Scholarship Fund, solely supported by our endless fundraising efforts, is the hallmark of our program and crucial in allowing our philosophy of "never turning a rider away solely due to lack of funds" to continue.
