30 Years Celebration!
We are celebrating 30 years! What a ride it has been! If you have a photo from sometime in the past 30 years from Healing Strides that you would like to share in the comments, please do! Our original roots go back to 1991 as the Roanoke Valley Therapeutic Riding Program, so pull out those old photos and share! Thank you to everyone who has continued to support us through every season! And a BIG thank you to the crew over at 5Points Creative for designing this new logo, helping us celebrate 30 years of service!
