This hero portrays the value of REACHING OUT
Submitted by almost 5 years ago.
Michaella is my hero. When she was just 14, Michaella helped create the Exceptional Rodeo for children with disabilities. She and her local 4-H Club raised over $2,000 to fund the rodeo, which included 'bucking' broncos (made of hay and barrels), calf roping, and stick horse barrel racing. As a result of Michaella's accomplishments, thirty-five local children with physical and developmental disabilities were able to experience the thrill of rodeo. 'Children can come out of the darkness with just one special thing you do for them,' explains Michaella. 'Just that one thing can change that person's life forever.' Additionally, Michaella has created the Foal Adoption Program, placing unwanted horses with local 4-H kids.
