Posted

Rehoboth, MA. August 23, 2017- Greenlock Therapeutic Riding Center is partnering with local Rehoboth business, Personal Best Physical Therapy, to bring you the 3rd Annual Gallop for Greenlock 5K and 1 Mile Family Fun Walk. The race will be held on Sunday, October 15, 2017. Registration begins at 8:30AM and the race starts at 10AM. The USATF certified course begins and ends on the grounds of Greenlock Therapeutic Riding Center (59 Summer Street, Rehoboth, MA). Early registration is now open. The Gallop for Greenlock 5K welcomes leashed dogs and strollers. The 5K is important to raising awareness about Greenlock’s programs and raising funds to continue its mission of providing affordable therapies.

Greenlock and Personal Best Physical Therapy will be hosting a post-race party on the grounds of Greenlock. Kathy Darowski, Program Director at Greenlock, says, “Greenlock has been a part of this community for over 25 years. I feel it is important for the residents of Rehoboth and surrounding communities to visit our facility and meet our wonderful horses and program participants”. The post-race party will include food donated by local businesses, raffles, music and a meet and greet with Greenlock’s horses.

The partnership with Personal Best Physical Therapy is a wonderful example of local organizations coming together to highlight positive things happening within the community. Greenlock Therapeutic Riding Center is a non-profit organization that utilizes equine-related activities for the therapy of individuals with physical, developmental and emotional differences. Greenlock offers both Hippotherapy and therapeutic riding which teaches specific riding skills.

Hippotherapy is a practice in which physical, speech and occupational therapists employ the horse’s movement as a treatment tool to improve neuromuscular function, language, and fine motor skills. This makes Personal Best Physical Therapy the perfect partner to collaborate with on the Gallop for Greenlock. Locally owned, Personal Best Physical Therapy prides itself on providing physical therapy services that treat the whole patient, not just the condition. 

Greenlock Therapeutic Riding Center and Personal Best Physical Therapy invite you to join them for the 3rd Annual Gallop for Greenlock and 1 Mile Fun Walk and post-race party. Not only is it an important fundraiser for Greenlock’s programs, but it is also a way to get to know two organizations in the community.
