Pony ride fundraiser for Give Kids The World

March 20, 2019 | Wheaton News & Events

For families with a child battling a critical illness, schedules often become filled with doctor appointments, hospital visits, and medical treatments. Give Kids The World Village, a nonprofit resort in Central Florida, offers these families week-long, cost-free vacations to take a much-needed break and spend time together.

Wheaton World Wide Moving sponsors horseback riding at the resort’s “Keaton’s Korral”, allowing children of all abilities to experience the joy of riding a horse during their vacation. To support that sponsorship, Crown Moving & Storage | Wheaton World Wide Moving will offer pony rides at its headquarters on Saturday, April 13. Pony rides will be $15 each, and additional donations will be accepted.

pony ride fundraiser for GKTW“At Give Kids The World, guests can forget about the day-to-day challenges they face and just laugh and play together as a family,” said Jessica Mueller, Give Kids The World spokesperson. “Keaton’s Korral is one great example of the joys they can experience during their stay.”

In fact, that focus on family and changing lives for the better is what drew Wheaton World Wide Moving to get involved with the nonprofit.

“We were inspired to sponsor horseback riding at Give Kids The World when Keaton, a Give Kids The World wish child, spoke at our annual partnership conference,” said Mark Kirschner, Wheaton World Wide Moving CEO. “The attraction is called Keaton’s Korral because of the boy’s passion for the nonprofit and the impact it had on his life.”
