After a grueling 21 months and 4,000 miles, a dream is finally coming true!
Richard and Jeannette McGrath and their four-legged companions are arriving at the Atlantic Ocean in Virginia Beach after traveling by horseback across America all the way from California’s Pacific Coast. Their purpose is to raise awareness and funds for Hearts Up Ranch, a charity that combines the benefits of horses and outdoor adventure with prayer ministry to facilitate emotional healing from traumatic incidents.
Please join us when they cross the finish line at the Atlantic and for a benefit dinner for Hearts Up Ranch as we celebrate with the McGraths the successful completion of this journey.
The Finish Line
On Saturday, December 10, 2011 the coast-to-coast riders will splash 4 feet, 20 hooves and 4 paws in the Atlantic Ocean! You are invited to celebrate with them as they cross the ‘finish line’ at 1:00pm at the 17th St. Park in Virginia Beach. Parking is available at this location.
Benefit Dinner and Celebration:
Afterwards there will be a gathering of friends, family, hosts and well-wishers from across the country bringing donations and a potluck dish to share. There will be music provided by Andre Lopez and cowboy fare and ice cream provided by the church and members of the community.
