TRAK is Celebrating Ten Years of Strengthening Kids & Community. Show Your Support for a Second Decade of Success!
It's testimonials like this one that remind us of the life-changing importance of our continuing mission:
"I remember very clearly dropping my son off at Trak for the first time many years ago and sitting in the car, holding my breath, hoping he would relax and have fun. Knowing that he was worrying about germs, how big the horses were, looking stupid in front of other kids and not getting it right, I worried too. Little did I know he was about to meet the man I like to call the “D- Whisperer”. A man who’s quiet confidence and calm demeanor both frustrated and inspired a young kid who had little confidence in himself. Scott never rose to the bait when D got frustrated or changed his belief in D’s abilities. Even when D quit for a day, weeks, or months Scott was right there when D returned, calmly leading him forward, taking small victories like getting horse spit on your hands as huge wins. Fast forward to a 17 year old who has grown into a thoughtful, albeit stubborn, young man. A young man who doesn’t quit, works hard, feels compassion for others, and takes risks without constantly worrying about failure. When I look back on all the pivotal points and people who have helped get us where we are today, I know that Trak and Scott were the turning point. The D-Whisperer will forever hold a place in my heart because he believes in my son. Thank you to all who make Trak a reality." -A.O., Tucson parent
Individuals, young and seasoned, have special needs, and they are all unique. TRAK serves children, but there are many adults who benefit from the ranching environment, including those recovered from stroke, veterans who deal with post-traumatic stress, and parents of children with challenges who need respite from their daily routine. The magic of TRAK is that everyone can find something "therapeutic", that is calming or healing to their spirit.
Your monthly charitable contribution of $35 or $70 is tax-deductible, and, if you are an Arizona State Income Taxpayer, qualifies for a charitable tax credit of $400 or $800, respectively.

"We love this place. We need to get back there. My daughter absolutely loves going there. She is autistic and the staff there always makes it a great time when she is there. She loves playing with the pigs and the donkeys. Next goal is to do the horses. Thank you TRAK for having a place for us to enjoy the animals and have therapy at the same time. K.R., Tucson."
