"Horses lend us the wings we lack"

Julie Faul Memorial Scholarship

The passing of Julie Faul on June 6th 2020 has inspired Rainbow Farms to sponsor an individual to participate in weekly hippotherapy for up to 5 months through our Julie Faul Memorial Scholarship. Hippotherapy is a form of physical, occupational and speech therapy which a therapist uses the characteristic movements of a horse to provide carefully graded motor and sensory guidance for an individual. This Scholarship is in honor of Julie, who although battled with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), is known for her wholeheartedness and will to train through hippo-therapy lessons here at Rainbow Farms. Julie's happiest moments were shared among us and in remembrance of this young lady, we have the honor of offering another rider the same joys Julie demonstrated.

All proceeds towards the Julie Faul Memorial Scholarship will pay for an individual chosen through Rainbow Farms referrals to participate in one lesson per week, for up to five months in honor of Julie's legacy. While the individual participates in hippotherapy, the occupational therapist and veteran horse trainer partner to facilitate one of the most meaningful and individualized lesson plan(s) of a lifetime; the same opportunity Julie was able to conquer. This scholarship will allow an individual the opportunity to create an everlasting bond with one of our horses and also challenge themselves as individuals and human beings.

As we began to brainstorm a fundraising platform for Julie, Go Fund Me was reccommended however after researching the business, we realize the Go Fund Me platform is not cost-effective nor beneficial for The Julie Faul Memorial Scholarship as the business takes .30 cents for each dollar towards their own earnings. This is not a fundraising platform we agreed with during these challenging times.
