New Linda L. Lester Equestrian Center
On Saturday, March 18th, we cut the ribbon to our new Linda L. Lester Equestrian Center at Via West Campus, formerly the horse corral. These renovations were made possible by the wonderful contributions of Ms. Lester (pictured below).
Ms. Lester generously donated $50,000 to continue to fund the Linda L. Lester Equestrian Program, which provided therapeutic riding for over 600 participants in 2016 at Via West Campus. Participants from both our Altitude and Via West programs will continue to enjoy field trips to trail ride through the Stevens Creek Foothills at nearby Garrod Farms. These riding activities are so valuable, as they enhance independent living skills, social skills, and physical mobility.
Thank you so much to Ms. Lester and for all that she does for Via Services! Read what the San Jose Mercury News had to say here: http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/05/23/pizarro-via-services-opens-new-facilities-at-cupertino-campus/
