The Glades Initiative, Inc. was thrilled to win a total of $46,500 from the Great Charity Challenge. When their riders (who continued to compete in the pouring rain) placed 24th, they won $21,500 in addition to a $25,000 special award! It was a great event at the Winter Equestrian Center - even with the undesirable weather.
The Glades Initiative was also extremely grateful to win one of the special random grants! It was a incredible night for the Glades Initiative! They send a huge thank you to all the sponsors and supporters, especially Mark Bellissimo and Anne Caroline.
