Equi-Librium Therapy Center

The upcoming Color Run will be helping the Equi-Librium Therapy Center, a non-profit organization that offers accredited equine therapy services to people with special needs throughout the Ozarks. Last year, more than 10,000 participants ran to help ETC. ETC offers Therapeutic Riding, Hippotherapy, Equine Facilitated Learning and Warriors Walk On Project depending on the client's needs. The Color Run will be a fun, exciting way to help people with special needs. There are many ways to become involved. You can run through the paint throwers or be a paint thrower or just sponsor someone else and watch, contact Billie at 417-830-1642 or etctherapy@gmail.com to sign up.

The proceeds will go to constructing new individualized therapy rooms, class rooms, and viewing areas onto the existing center located on 26 acres 9 miles east of Springfield on 1148 South Courtney Lane, Rogersville, MO. ETC offers services in collaboration with Missouri State University, Burrell Behavior Health, The Arc of the Ozarks, North View Center, Wounded Warriors Project, Developmental Connections and surrounding Public Schools.

Equine-assisted therapies use the natural movement of a horse to strengthen muscles and increase body awareness, muscle coordination, communication, and self-confidence in someone with special needs. If you have a person that might benefit from this then make plans to begin the application process by going to www.etctherapy.org or call 417-830-1409.
