Local runners from a holiday-themed fun run, hosted by Summit Health will help steer local services at a therapeutic riding center through the New Year.

The Christmas Cash Dash, held November 10, raised more than $5,000. The proceeds have been donated to the Franklin County 4-H Therapeutic Riding Center, Chambersburg.

“I just want to let them know I’m so thankful they took us on. We need fundraisers like this. For the community to support us means so much,” explained Susan Rotz, program director at Franklin County 4-H Therapeutic Riding Center.

The riding center has served Franklin County for more than 36 years, offering advantageous horsemanship services for riders of all ages.

The donation will support the organizations programs, will help feed the horses, and contribute to scholarship funds available for riders.

A different organization from the community is selected by the Road Runners Club each year to receive the benefits of the Cash Dash.
