How You Can Help Special Needs Children and Adults and Get Some Exercise in Naples Florida

Image00001There is a very special way that you can help children and adults with special needs this month and get some exercise for yourself as well.  Feel good about helping others and at the same time your body will feel good for the exercise!  It’s a win-win situation and shouldn’t be missed.

Naples Equestrian Challenge is holding their 3rd annual 5K Run/Walk and 1 mile Fun Run/Walk on Saturday February 16th.  The race begins at 7:30 am and there is parking available at the North Naples United Methodist Church on Goodlette Road.  For a map and directions click here.  If you preregister by February 15th the entry fee is only $15 or you can pay $20 and register at the race.  Online registration is available at Gulf Coast Runners website.

The Naples Equestrian Challenge is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and adults with special needs through therapeutic horseback riding and other equine related programs.  Now they have added a program to help our returning veterans who have emotional and disability issues.  The Naples Daily News wrote a wonderful article about this program and how monies raised by the annual Wine Festival are being used to help our veterans.  Click here to read this inspiring story of one veteran working to overcome post traumatic stress syndrome by learning to ride and communicate with a horse.

So click here and get training for the next couple of weeks so that you can win your age group on February 16th!  If you would like more information about this or other runs sponsored by Gulf Coast Runners, contact me  or call me at 239-601-3174.  If we meet at the run I would be happy to talk about the Naples real estate market with you.  I can run and talk about real estate at the same time!  See you there and in the meantime don’t forget to spend some time searching for your new home in Naples Florida.  Remember it is always Toasty in Naples and you deserve a piece of the sunshine.  Or leave a comment if you prefer.
