Sonoma County Human Race, April 28th, 2018

On April 28, 2018 we are participating in the Sonoma County Human Race to raise $25,000 to help cover the cost of feed and veterinary care for our gentle therapy horses! And to kick it off our Board of Directors is matching the first $5,000 raised dollar- for-dollar. That means that your donation today will be doubled!

As you know, our life-changing programs are made possible thanks to our amazing herd of 18 therapy horses. Our horses are donated to us by generous individuals from throughout the Bay Area and are at the heart of everything we do.

We truly could not provide the empowering outdoor experiences we do were it not for our horses. Please join us in raising funds to ensure they get the best feed, care, and stabling possible!

Some FUNdraising Tips!

Fundraising doesn't need to be awkward, challenging or uncomfortable. It can be fun! Here are a few easy tips to help you engage your friends and family in helping us reach our goal:

  • Email blasts are quick and easy, and the online fundraising platform and social media are game changers. Try it! You can "share" straight from your fundraising page!
  • Tell a story. Share your passion. What have you witnessed or experienced in your child or while volunteering here at HCR that will move your donors to give?
  • Four magic tips:
    • Many hands make light work! Raise $100 fast: ask 10 friends to donate $10 each (or ask one person to donate $100).
    • Invite coworkers, friends, neighbors, & family members to join Team Halleck to join us in fundraising.
    • Get creative. Ask your neighbor, doctor, dentist, insurance agent, beautician, vendors, etc. for their support.
    • Everyone loves a party with a purpose: wine & cheese night, girl’s night in, movie night, backyard BBQ. Ask invitees to donate to HCR. You have an excuse to get together with people you enjoy; and raise money to help us reach our goal.

Will you support us by joining Team Halleck to help fundraise, or consider making a contribution today? On behalf of the horses and everyone on the Halleck Creek Ranch Team, thank you.
