5:30 – 7:00pm Kendra Scott Gives Back – 20% of every purchase benefits Upward Transitions Therapeutic Horsemanship.
Joe Reinagel, Sports Director from KENS TV and his daughter Kayla are proud to host this year’s annual Golf Tournament to benefit Upward Transitions Therapeutic Horsemanship and Kayla will be this year’s honoree.
In 1998, when Joy was 18 weeks pregnant, she went into labor. After rushing to the Dr’s office, he informed her that she was 6.6 cm dilated and 100 % effaced. A nurse rushed in and transported her by wheelchair across to The Methodist Hospital. During this time the nurse asked “Do you want to dispose of your baby or bury her?” Kayla was born at 24 weeks weighing 1 pound and only 12 inches long from head to toe. As children we are taught that you get married, have babies and live happily ever after, but no one prepares you for medical challenges. Medical challenges do not discriminate. Kayla is vision impaired and has chronic lung disease along with other medical challenges. She has also had numerous surgeries, procedures, hospitalizations and is scheduled for another eye procedure. Along with challenges she has amazing gifts. She is smart, beautiful, loves Jesus, loves her family, and loves to sing. She is one of the few female vision impaired barrel racers. Her best friend weighs 1400 lbs., has only 1 eye and is named Tonka. Tonka and Upward Transitions has made a huge difference in her life. She has been able to reduce her medication and has completed almost a full year of school with only one homebound placement. She’s not only our miracle, she’s been saved by Grace.
Kayla has been a fighter since before birth, she is an inspiration and encouragement to families with micro- premature/premature babies. This year all money raised, 100% will stay local as we put our efforts towards building a new facility with better equipment, accessible facilities for children and adults with challenges and disabilities. Join us as we humbly ask for your support for this worthwhile cause, Upward Transitions Therapeutic Horsemanship. Therapeutic horseback riding teaches riding skills that have proven to be beneficial to children, adults, wounded warriors and veterans struggling with daily challenges and disabilities. Horses provide a positive therapeutic environment. Grooming and riding a horse develops self- confidence, control of emotions and self-discipline; encouraging the self-image with improved interest of the outside world. For more information please visit our website at www.upward-transitions.org. We are a trusted non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to improving the lives of our riders (Tax ID #45-1956036). Thank you to all the sponsors and supporters for making this event possible.
