About This Activity

Strongwater Farm will be hosting the 1st Annual Running Dead 5K to be held on Saturday October 8, 2016. The race will have participants running through woods and fields filled with obstacles all while being chased by the living dead.

This 5K fundraiser will benefit the Health and Well being of our "Four legged Staff Members"! The emotional and physical stresses placed on these magnificent animals each day is incredibly draining for them. Weekly, Strongwater Farm has about 150 clients coming to see each horse (we have 12 horses in total), and all of these clients are here for treatment struggling with different types of addictions, mental health disorders, behavioral health problems, and physical conditions or disabilities and rely on us for and our horses as a means of therapy. Well... you can just imagine what "they" (our horses) experience each day!

Expenses for these horses were just under $50,000.00 last year, and will increase this year as we are servicing more clients. We want to be sure our herd of horses are taken care of mind, body and soul!

You DON’T want to miss this event, and we can’t wait to see you there!
