We can go the distance…

Stirrup Hope is the annual fundraising gala for Quantum Leap Farm’s equine-assisted therapy programs. This year’s event was held on Saturday, March 2nd under a glowing Florida sunset. We had over 350 guests in Quantum’s riding arena this year!

Highlights of the evening included a photo experience with Khan as Pegasus, a delicious greek dinner, and a beautiful program, including moving testimonials from Quantum Leap Farm participants. 

Our theme this year was the story of Hercules and his hero’s journey – it so closely parallels that of many of our veterans, pediatric cancer patients, and children and adults with special needs. They too are navigating a difficult journey, trying to find that place where they belong – where they can grow and thrive. Quantum is that place, and our gentle horses and professional staff are here to help them do just that! At Quantum, our dedicated staff, volunteers, and especially our generous donors are those friends that help our therapy participants Go The Distance! 

We are so thankful for the support of our community!
