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.
The Miles for Smiles Motorcycle Ride benefiting CATRA began in August of 2012 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.
Onsite Check-In Opens, Auction Opens
The cost for an additional rider is $20. Meal only cost is $20 per person.
The Miles for Smiles Benefit Motorcycle Ride welcomes sponsorship from local, regional, and national business organizations. CATRA offers a variety of sponsorship levels to support the ride. Sponsor logos are included on the event t-shirt and in a variety of ways on social media, newsletter, webpage, and other CATRA events. Sign on early to ensure your logo on marketing materials. We also appreciate in-kind donations to be used as door prizes, silent auction items, and more.
