On July 20th, Rotary Club Chapter 11 presented Ride On St. Louis with a portion of the proceeds raised at their annual Charity Golf Scramble, held this year in May at the Norman K. Probstein Golf Course at Forest Park. The rotarians gift will directly support children and adults with disabilities who partake in equine-assisted activities and therapies at Ride On St. Louis. The presentation’s speaker was Bill DeWitt III, President of the St. Louis Cardinals, board member of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri (recent board chair), the St. Louis Sports Commission, the RCGA, City Arch River and the Muny.
“Their support provides us with the resources required to help people improve their quality of life, speak their first words, take their first steps and realize their own self-worth. We have witnessed miracles at Ride On St. Louis and have been blessed by the kindness of our supporters—supporters like Rotary Club 11”, states Marita Wassman, Program Director of Ride On St. Louis.
