Wouldn’t you like to help clients of Pushing Boundaries regain independent functions and abilities? You can. Become a sponsor for the Annual Fundraiser Barrel Race! We are reaching out in search of sponsors for our 5th annual event, scheduled for August 11, 2018 at Green River Saddle Club in Auburn, Washington.

At 28 years old, Melanie Christianson incurred a spinal cord injury while riding at a competition in June of 2010. After two months in Harborview Medical Center, Melanie found independence and inspiration through Pushing Boundaries.

Pushing Boundaries is a non-profit rehabilitation facility in Redmond, WA that provides physical therapy and personal training using equipment, techniques, and technology designed to improve the quality of life for individuals who have suffered various neurological injuries. The help of this wonderful organization allowed Melanie to ride again, before her unexpected passing in August of 2013.

Over the past four years this fundraiser has grown each year. We have raised approximately $20,000 in Melanie’s name.

We would like to request your participation and support in this incredible fundraiser via sponsorships, cash or silent auction donations of either products, services, or gift cards to be used in our silent auction. You may also participate by being a sponsor at several different levels. All proceeds from this fundraising event benefit Pushing Boundaries (pushing-boundaries.org/melanie-christianson-memorial-barrel-race).

For more information on how to donate call 425-869-9506 or email info@pushing-boundaries.org.
