Challenging the Limits of Disability - Harnessing Hope & Healing by Access Adventure
The Caravan, a Transcontinental Horsedrawn Journey, began November 1, 2014 in Murrieta, California and will travel all the way to Weirsdale, Florida by March, 2015. Led by World Champion carriage driver and aspiring Paralympian Michael Muir and renowned horseman Gerard Paagman of the Netherlands and Canada, the Caravan serves to promote equestrian sport and accessible outdoor recreation for people with disabilities.
Access Adventure is launching Operation Welcome Home!. This new initiative is designed to serve newly injured and recovering veterans and other people who have suffered catastrophic injuries or disabling illnesses and are struggling to adapt to a different way of life.
We are here to prove by example that disability does not mean inability. Nature is healing. The horses are the bridge that compensates for our lost function. Despite living with significant disability, our lives are full and rich with experience. We want to share this gift. You Can Help!
Please contribute any amount to support our life-changing work. Every dollar you give provides outreach and services to help an injured veteran, a person with special needs or a disabled child. Everyone at Access Adventure is an unpaid volunteer and all our programs are free.
Forward this message to your friends and encourage them to share. Together, we can help to rebuild shattered lives. We are harnessing hope and healing. Each time we challenge the limits of our disability, we gain strength, confidence and courage. Please help us to carry this important message across our nation.
Thank you for your support - Michael Muir & Access Adventure
