7th Annual Chili Cook-Off


Help sponsor Yogi! 10 friends, $10!

$5,000 will pay for Yogi’s feed, hay, supplements, farrier fees, and immunizations in 2018. Yogi is our gentle giant. He improves the lives of Simple Changes participants — from 2-year-old hippotherapy clients to 90 plus-year-old senior citizens. There is no horse like Yogi. Donate online via the PayPal Giving Fund and Simple Changes will receive 100% of the donation. Thank you!
