Austin Blades Sled Hockey Corp.

One of our many goals is to recruit more physically challenged individuals, especially kids via advertising and contacting schools/organizations to give them the opportunity to participate in a competitive team sport. Funds for ice time, new equipment, travel expenses for tournaments, camps and development are limited due to the fact there isn't enough awareness of Sled Hockey here in Austin, TX. Our USA Paralympic team traveled to Sochi for Sled hockey and won Gold for USA. I would love to give our younger generation the opportunity to reach that same amazing goal.

Dream a Dream Therapeutic Horsemanship

Dream a Dream strives to bring the healing power of horses to those with special needs and works with area agencies to make riding dreams a possibility. DADTH is expanding its program with the addition of another instructor and new rider evaluations on a weekly basis. Since last year, two new horses have been added to the herd of loving therapy horses. DADTH is also involved in a research project investigating how therapeutic horseback riding improves the social behavior of individuals with austism. It is our dream to help provide research evidence on the amazing connection between horses and humans and the healing it brings. In addition, we are ready to publish a book about one of our therapy horses named Gracie and want to make this the springboard to a literacy project. The book will also be implemented in a social skills program for individuals with autism that is facilitated by an ABA therapist. Funds raised during the Amplilfy Austin campaign will make our dreams of helping others enjoy the wonderful world of horses a reality. Thank you so much for your support of our dream!

Friends of Blue Hole

Recently tested by repeated floods, Blue Hole Regional Park, with its creek-side bald cypress, native landscaping, and recreational facilities offers a place of healing in the Wimberley Valley. Sparkling at the heart of the park is its iconic, pristine swimming hole. Thanks to its meticulous design, the park, now in its second decade, is a national model and a destination for environmentalists, architects and arborists. It is a learning destination for high school and university classes studying water conservation, environmental restoration and urban planning. The park is a model of how Hill Country communities can collaborate in public/private partnerships to protect open spaces for public use in a region facing rapid development pressure. In 2016, 35,000 visitors enjoyed the swimming area. The soccer fields are in play 5-6 days a week in season. The amphitheater, fire pit and pavilion host a growing number of local celebrations. The trails are in constant use. Friends of Blue Hole provides free programming through its Family Learning Series. Also in 2016, New York Times best-selling author S.C. Gwynne (an Austinite) spoke to an overflowing amphitheater crowd this fall. Friends of Blue Hole sponsored park programs, boosted the City of Wimberley summer Outdoor Camps, obtained grants for equipment for the expanding park education programs, and assisted with new events to bring families into the outdoors and to encourage appreciation of the natural world.
