FMC Foundation of Caring helps Quantum Leap Farm host a successful Family Fun Day
On Saturday, August 3, 2013, fourteen volunteers from Florida Medical Clinic Foundation of Caring joined staff and volunteers at Quantum Leap Farm to provide a family fun day for Quantum Leap participants, family, friends and the surrounding community.
Quantum Leap Farm is a nationally recognized equestrian program serving injured and disabled civilian adults and children, as well as military service members and their families. Quantum Leap Farm Founder, Edie Dopking, said she is grateful for the financial and volunteer support from FMC Foundation of Caring and other organizations that make it possible for Quantum Leap to continue its outstanding work.
“In addition to our therapy work, we host many of these family fun days for the general public and wounded warriors each year. Hundreds of people enjoy the opportunity to come out, relax and have fun at the farm thanks, in large part, to our volunteers.” Dopking said.
Family Fun Day attendees rode horses, enjoyed burgers and hot dogs hot of the grill, made keepsake crafts and even painted a white horse in neon rainbow colors. Florida Medical Clinic Foundation of Caring volunteers assisted with parking, crowd control, cooking, food preparation, horse painting and in the arts and crafts area.
