Capital Becomes Major Sponsor for Sunrise Therapeutic Riding & Learning Centre in Puslinch, Ontario.
On June 4, 2017, at Sunrise Therapeutic’s (www.sunrise-therapeutic.ca) annual Celebrate Sunrise event, Capital was announced as a major sponsor for the facility. Sunrise’s mission is “to develop the full potential of children and adults with special needs and lead them closer to independence through a therapy, recreation, horse riding, life skills, and farm related activity program”. At the event, Capital employees were able to meet some of the amazing children that attend the program, to better understand how Sunrise is making their lives better. This year, Molly Burke (www.mollyburkeofficial.com) was made an honorary director of the facility. Molly gave an inspirational speech on the challenges she faced growing up with a disability, including bullying, loss of friendships, loss of soccer; on top of the challenges of losing her sight. There was not a dry eye as everyone tried to understand how a child could face challenges with such bravery and what Sunrise meant to her. She is now an adult and accomplishing great things.
Sunrise offers a range of programs for children and youth, both with and without disabilities; including Therapeutic Riding, Camp Sunrise, Life Skills Day Programs, Little Breeches Club, and Riding Club. These programs are intended to teach inclusion and life skills, as well as having some fun and a break from the challenges they face.
Capital is proud to be a sponsor and is looking forward to fulfilling our five year commitment to Sunrise Therapeutic Riding & Learning Centre.
This year Capital has taken down an old concrete silo, installed some new sidewalks and fixed their parking lot.
