2023 Summer Newsletter

Happy Summer 2023!

We hope you are enjoying a happy, healthy and safe summer. We have been busy at Patrick Lives On and wanted to share exciting information with all of you.

Rising Star Ranches.org  provides cost free equine assisted activities to first responders. These activities have an informal setting (peer supported equine activities) and formal (evidence based care) via a network of vetted and certified participating stables.

Patrick Lives On is a proud supporter. Our current sponsorship enables 10 first responders to get much needed therapy.

Thank you to Midwest Stunts!
