One of the many common interests that our agents share is a desire to give back to our communities and to make a difference. And we've all certainly learned that when we do, we really end up receiving so much more! We'd like to thank Paula Russo Sughrue for sharing a recent experience she had with a truly life changing organization:
Earlier this summer, I had the pleasure of joining 500 other runners in the 9th annual Susan McDaniel Run for Lovelane. This professionally timed race is challenging enough for elite runners but welcoming and enjoyable for families, walkers, and even strollers. The 5K race starts at the Weston Town Green and makes its way along the beautiful neighborhoods in Weston, Massachusetts with friendly homeowners along the way providing much-needed water to the runners.
Lovelane provides high-quality, therapeutic horseback riding to achieve therapeutic gains to children with special needs. This fun and supportive environment has been an integral part of my niece, Olivia's amazing progress over the past eight years. She thoroughly enjoys her weekly horseback rides with the special attention from the licensed therapeutic riding instructors. Some other activities present a physical challenge to Olivia, but with horseback riding she's on top of the world and so proud of herself! It's heartwarming for her family to know that she's experiencing this much joy.
My children and I have been part of this wonderful fundraiser for the past 3 years. Olivia's team is named Team Trots and is pictured above. Her team grows each year. Her parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and cousins all come out to show their support for her and this important program. Let me know if you want to join Team Trots next year. All are welcome! The atmosphere of young and old Lovelane supporters is so inspiring.
