Inspire & Propel Project

We seek to propel local nonprofits specializing in mental health, special needs and physical disabilities to the forefront of our communities. They are the backbone and silent warriors supporting these causes. We will inspire awareness and generosity through our programs, with the ultimate goal of funding operations today and into the future.

We support targeted local nonprofit organizations by leveraging our core strength of hosting fitness and wellness events to grow awareness, drive community participation and, ultimately, provide financial contribution.

The Inspire & Propel Project (IPP) is a nonprofit, fundraising initiative which operates under Tri-Valley Nonprofit Alliance. Each year IPP will choose a local nonprofit organization in our community to run a 12-month long fundraising campaign for. The organization we choose is one that we feel could benefit from extra awareness and fundraising. The chosen organization must specialize in helping those living with; physical disabilities, mental health needs, or special needs.  Our objective is to host various fundraising events throughout the entire year to highlight this one nonprofit. The majority of these fundraising events will focus on health, wellness, and fitness.

This year we are very excited to announce, we have chosen Reins in Motion Foundation (RIM) in Livermore CA.

The Reins in Motion Foundation is a volunteer-based therapeutic riding program. RIM presently has two PATH certified instructors, Katy Kempton, Director, and Amanda Dortch, over 30 volunteers and about 50 clients attending weekly sessions at the ranch. RIM operates all year round. 

Reins In Motion serves children as young as 2 ½ years old and they don’t age out, meaning RIM doesn’t discontinue services regardless of the age of the rider. After certified instructors evaluate each new rider and discuss personal goals with the rider’s parents, they develop individual lesson plans and track their progress, meeting with parents on a quarterly basis or as needed.

In addition to helping the special needs community, RIM also has a weekly two hour program for local veterans. Click here to learn more about Reins in Motion.
