The Rolling Barrage PTSD Foundation / The Rolling Barrage recently donated $5000.00 to Can Praxis. There is a significant history between The Rolling Barrage and Can Praxis with several donations to Can Praxis over the years.
To present the donation from The Rolling Barrage PTSD Foundation / The Rolling Barrage was Carola Singer, who is a part of the Board of Directors for The Rolling Barrage PTSD Foundation. She is also an avid rider and, if you have been on The Rolling Barrage in previous years, has been instrumental in making the regular stops in Okotoks, Alberta very memorable. Carola was accompanied by her husband Shawn Singer, who is a Canadian Armed Forces veteran having served in both the Royal Canadian Regiment and then a firefighter. He would then begin a long career with the Calgary Fire Service and recently retired. He is also a rider and has done The Full Pull with The Rolling Barrage as well.
What a fantastic picture of all those in attendance at the Can Praxis facilities with four beautiful horses and volunteers from Can Praxis. Amazing people doing great things and let’s not forget the horses too. They do amazing things as well with veterans and first responders in helping move forward with the challenges that PTSD and other mental and physical injuries can occur from service.
This donation is made possible by all those who support The Rolling Barrage PTSD Foundation / The Rolling Barrage by Sponsorship, Donations, the purchase of our Merchandise and Registering and riding with The Rolling Barrage during our annual coast to coast ride to raise awareness about PTSD and Mental and Physical Health challenges many face from their service to Canada and overseas on active duty. Thank you to everyone that makes this possible for organizations such as Can Praxis do what they need to do to help the Veteran and First Responder communities.
Can Praxis EAL is a Canadian registered charity that provides mental health recovery programs for Canadian Veterans and First Responders (serving and retired) living with an Operational Stress Injury (OSI), such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
They incorporate equine therapy into their programs because horses understand us and can teach us about ourselves. Horses are experts at reading body language and pick up on all the non-verbal cues we bring to an interaction.
Founded in 2013 by a Canadian Military Veteran and a Trauma-focused clinician, Can Praxis is a leading Equine-Assisted Therapy provided for the Veteran and First Responder communities.
To learn more about Can Praxis and, more importantly, if you are a veteran or first responder in need of a highly valued mental health recovery program, please get in touch with them from the information provided below.
As with any charity based organization, they continually need funding. If many people contributed the equivalence of what they would spend on a quick lunch or dinner one time but together, that can present a tremendous impact to any organization. In the end, contributing to something you hold personally for whatever reason is important and if you are, of course, able to.
Again, thanks to everyone involved in some way with The Rolling Barrage PTSD Foundation / The Rolling Barrage. You collectively made this recent donation happen.
