Take on a sponsored challenge for us

Our Spring Fundraising Campaign 2017 is all about challenges! At MRT we encourage our riders, therapy ponies and volunteers to achieve their best every day. Will you help us provide more riding therapy to more people with disabilities by taking on a sponsored challenge?

Tell us what you’re planning! fundraising@muirfieldridingtherapy.org.uk

It can be anything from a sponsored silence in your school to your own sponsored swim. What about setting yourself a read-a-thon, or a rambling challenge with work colleagues?

Cameron Robert Law, 62, has chosen to run the London Marathon on 23rd April 2017 for us;

“I only took up running seriously with the approach of the big 60! It’s part of a personal challenge to get fit. I am delighted to be a part of this campaign, especially as MRT are asking all their riders to join in too. Many of them face difficulties every single day and I hope my small effort will encourage others to take on challenges too.”

Other Challenge Stories

Anna, London Marathon 2016.

I secured a place in the marathon through my work and decided to raise money for MRT in addition to my work placed charity. I wanted to raise money for a local charity and one that meant something to me. My youngest sister Brooke has been coming to MRT and loves it. The race was challenging but the atmosphere and support along the route was phenomenal. To anyone thinking of taking on a sponsored challenge I say, do it! I really loved training for the marathon, it gave me a chance to explore parts of East Lothian and Edinburgh I otherwise wouldn’t have. And I think raising money for a charity that means something to you really helps motivate when the training starts to get tough.

The Numeracy and Mathematics Leadership team is involved in leading developments in Numeracy and Mathematics across all our schools in East Lothian.  A number of us were fortunate enough to travel to North Carolina in October 2016 to engage in the research in this area and it was on that trip that the plan was hatched to run the Hairy Haggis.  We decided that we wanted to use the opportunity to raise money for charity.  It was important to us that we chose a charity that meant a lot to us.  Many of the children in our schools have benefited greatly from the opportunities provided by Muirfield Riding Therapy  and we wanted to choose a small local charity to support.  We are absolutely delighted  to have raised the money we have raised and to support such a worthwhile charity which has such an impact on our children with a range of additional needs. Most of us were not runners before we started and as well as exercising our brains through our work, we exercised our bodies and became fitter too!
