STRIDES Volunteer Receives Minooka Volunteerism Award!


Last week, Paige McLawhorn, a high school sophomore and full-time volunteer at STRIDES Therapeutic Riding Center and Farm, received the Minooka Volunteerism Award.  Paige is the daughter of Laura McLawhorn, Director of the STRIDES program.

The award was presented by Ric Offerman, Mayor of Minooka.

Paige is an accomplished equestrian who loves to teach others to ride, especially people with disabilities. 

"During the school year, I volunteer at STRIDES on weekends or during school breaks," said Paige.  "However, during the summer, I volunteer 40 hours or more a week.  It's a very rewarding experience."
