The Compass Access team is always proud to support our local community -- and when it involves breakfast (our favourite meal of the day) we love it even more!
This month, we were so pleased to have been able to support Peace Area Riding for the Disabled Society (PARDS) at the TP Stampede's Pancake Breakfast. Over three days, volunteers from Compass Access helped feed about 1600 hungry early-risers -- all in support of a cause that is near and dear to our hearts.
PARDS is a registered charity that offers equine-assisted therapeutic programs to children and adults living with physical, developmental, emotional, behavioural and social challenges. It is the only full-time therapeutic riding centre in Alberta, and one of only three in all of Canada.
There's always something different going on at PARDS, and their team works around the clock to accommodate the individual needs of those involved in their programs. From therapeutic riding and horse grooming to youth leadership programs, their initiatives provide a powerful and unique alternative to more traditional clinical settings.
PARDS realizes that every individual who comes to them is different with unique needs, and so they build equally unique experiences. The team designs programs to fit the person, not the other way around. The result is a transformation that’s both physical and psychological.
We love everything this fantastic organisation stands for and thank them for allowing us to get involved. As you can see in the photos, it was a great time all around!
