Along with disrupting daily life worldwide, the COVID-19 outbreak has exacerbated vulnerabilities amongst those who need support the most, our veterans. Despite having to close its two physical centers in Illinois, BraveHearts–a 501c3 nonprofit therapeutic riding center and the leading equine rehabilitation program for veterans–is building innovative programs to continue to provide veterans services at no cost. 

Kicking off Military Appreciation Month tomorrow, Friday, May 1 at 7 pm CST, BraveHearts will host a livestream virtual fundraiser to share compelling stories from veterans, feature wild mustang encounters, celebrity appearances, and an online auction. It will be available to watch on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. Full details are available at
