The Arkansas Tech University-Ozark Campus’ Physical Therapy Assistant (PTA) program will host a pancake breakfast Friday, Jan. 27, to benefit Equestrian Zone in Russellville.
Equestrian Zone uses hippotherapy, a physical, occupational and speech therapy treatment strategy that utilizes horse movement, to serve children and adults with a wide diversity of physical, cognitive, mental and emotional disabilities.
The breakfast will run from 7-9 a.m. and cost $5, all of which will go toward the non-profit therapy clinic. It will be held in the Student Services Conference Center and consist of pancakes, bacon or sausage and juice or coffee.
PTA Director Nina Pope said, “We are so excited about this event, because Equestrian Zone provides a much needed and valuable therapy tool in hippotherapy that benefits both children and adults.
“This is a non-profit organization that relies heavily on donations to continue providing these valuable services.”
Pope said several PTA students perform their clinical work at Equestrian Zone, “so we want to do something for them.”]]>
