Memorial Day is dedicated to remembering and honoring the men and women who have or are currently serving in our Armed Services. Today, we’re proud to say thank you for your service, and to honor the family members who “serve and sacrifice” when their military family members are deployed.
Saratoga WarHorse is an outstanding program in Saratoga that uses thoroughbred horses to help veterans with their transition back to civilian life. Veterans who are having difficulty with images, panic attacks, and more can participate in the Saratoga WarHorse program for healing. The thoroughbreds, who no longer race at the track, find their next gift in the form of helping those suffering.
Sports PT is pleased to help raise much needed funds for this worthwhile cause. Kristen, a patient in our Saratoga clinic, shares this story:
“Saratoga WarHorse has a special place in my heart. Living with someone after they come back from war, whether they are physically or mentally traumatizing, is traumatizing to the family unit. The program was extremely helpful for me and I am eternally grateful for it.
I have an equally special place in my heart for Sports PT. It is not a surprise to me that Sports PT is committed to giving back to their community; after all, you help so many people get back to a better quality of life every day. I’m not sure where I would be without either one of these services. So, I thank you from the very bottom of my heart. You guys are an amazing crew there from your front office staff to every single physical therapist. I love you guys. Thanks for giving a little bit to the veteran community.”
