OPG helps PRANCE with funding for a new program

PRANCE (Pegasus Riding Association Nurturing Challenged Equestrians) located at the north end of Port Elgin (Saugeen Shores), is a therapeutic equestrian program dedicated to the growth and development of people with physical, emotional or developmental challenges through volunteerism and community partnerships.

Recently, PRANCE reached out to Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON) to run a unique program for their youth at risk.  As part of its on-going, long-term support, Ontario Power Generation (OPG) came on board as lead corporate sponsor, along with SON, and recently presented a donation of $3,000 to help the new program.

PRANCE’s mandate is to work in conjunction with health care providers to assist in the rehabilitation and social development of people with developmental, physical and emotional challenges through therapeutic riding.

Lynda Cain of OPG said that, “PRANCE is a well-recognized organization in the community and, with OPG’s help, they will be able to impact SON youth at risk to provide positive results.”
