Equine Therapy is something Jocelyn Hagerman feels especially close. She has been riding for years and knows firsthand the healing power horses bring to individuals. After learning of Camp Casey, she became excited to see if there was a way to expand their services to Flint and Genesee County. Where there is a will, there is a way!
The grant awarded by The Hagerman Foundation will allow for more programming in Genesee County, bringing Camp Casey’s Horsey House Call Program to patients served at Hurley Medical Center.
Camp Casey’s Horsey House Call program surprises children that are living with cancer and rare blood disorders with a knock on the door and a horse on their doorstep. Their team spends the afternoon providing a day of riding, grooming, treats, arts and crafts, pizza and more! Camp Casey has been helping kids conquer cancer for twelve years. 100% of Camp Casey’s programs are free to families.
“It’s an honor to bring the healing power of horses to the doorsteps of sick children in Genesee County” stated Jocelyn Hagerman, Founder of The Hagerman Foundation. “As a horsewoman myself, I understand the therapeutic effects of horses so when I learned that Camp Casey needed assistance bringing this magical program to children in our community, it was easy for me to wrap my heart around this cause.”
We are a nonprofit horseback riding program for children with cancer and rare blood disorders. Through generous donations and compassionate volunteers, Camp Casey has spread the healing power of horses to Michigan families for over a decade.
