CATRA Fundraising Event

Your Support Goes A Long Way

Nearly 100 individuals from 7 Central Pennsylvania counties participate in therapeutic riding at CATRA on a weekly basis. In addition, we include typical-needs children and families in our literacy and character development programming. Many of these opportunities are provided to participants at little or no cost.

About The Event

The Miles for Smiles Motorcycle Ride benefiting CATRA began in August of 2011 and has quickly become one of CATRA’s largest annual fundraisers.

Join us in supporting local children, teens, adults, and families by riding in our annual “Miles for Smiles” Benefit Motorcycle Ride. Cyclists from throughout Central PA come together in Grantville and set out on a 60-mile ride. The ride raises funds to ensure the animal-assisted services at the Capital Area Therapeutic Riding Association (CATRA) are available to all who would benefit.

Register before or on August 18th and get a free T-shirt!
