Every year Amberly hosts a 5K race to raise money to support a new local nonprofit organization. This year the race will benefit the Horse & Buddy.
The mission of Horse & Buddy is to:
Enrich the lives of children and adults with special needs through equine assisted therapies and activities in a safe and caring environment.
Horse & Buddy is a nonprofit organization that helps people with special needs improve balance, muscle tone, motor skills, and self-esteem. They have lessons scheduled seven days per week and are a member of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International. (www.pathintl.org)

Fit & Able Productions is a nonprofit organization that has been supporting community and family fitness in Cary since 1997 through organizing creative events and training programs. We also support many programs, such as swim safety lessons for underprivileged children and adults, youth fitness programs, and health education run by our community partners including the Cary Family YMCA, Triangle Aquatic Center, and Town of Cary. Proceeds from our events that aren't designated to support other organizations go to support the event and other Fit & Able nonprofit activities.
