In November, the 2008 Atlantic Youth Hockey League WBS Knights invited The Equines For Freedom to a home game, in honor of military appreciation for Veteran’s Day. The team raised $535 for the organization through raffles and donations. On Thursday, January 26th, the team had the honor of presenting Equines For Freedom President, Bruce Spenser, with a check.
Equines for Freedom is a nonprofit organization that treats active and former military personnel who are experiencing symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Equines for Freedom has treated over 120 veterans and first responders to date.
