From time to time, the MDRT Foundation partners with charitable organizations to create meaningful volunteer service project opportunities for MDRT members.
In the past, MDRT members have built playgrounds and Habitat homes in underserved communities around the globe. MDRT Foundation service projects are a great way to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow MDRT members while making a lasting difference for children and families in need.

Camp Riley Service Project
On May 1-3, 2013, 19 MDRT members and guests travelled to Bradford Woods, Indiana, to build a fence for Camp Riley’s horse therapy program.
Camp Riley is a recreational camp that serves children with physical disabilities who are or have received care at Riley Hospital for Children, Indiana’s largest comprehensive children’s hospital.
“WOW!!! I have never been a part of anything that better represented what our MDRT Foundation is all about,” said Camp Riley volunteer and 15-year MDRT member David R. Wilson. “Children’s lives will be changed for more years than I will be around because of the connection they will make with a therapeutic horse at Camp Riley.”
