10K Run For Hope 2016

I am so pleased to announce that Mt. Brilliant Farm has generously decided to host this year’s 10K Race for Hope, September 26th, 2015. This race is in honor of Mary Kearney a mother and wife who fought cancer bravely. This year, however,  it is also in honor of our KDA President, Michelle Morehead.

If you haven’t met our President, Michelle Morehead, you should. She is tenacious yet patient, classy and funny, and in short, she has been a great asset and leader for the Kentucky Dressage Association the last few years. Her hard work and passion for the sport of Dressage in Kentucky has been incredible to witness!

I hope you will come join us at the beautiful Mt. Brilliant Farm, to honor and support 2 amazing individuals, Mary Kearney and Michelle Morehead.

All funds raised will be used to support Markey Cancer Center and Surgery on Sunday, a program to provide surgeries to those in need.

Changes in the Kroger program with KDA

In the past KDA has had members volunteer to get a prepaid Kroger card to let their Kroger points go to KDA. This program is no longer available. If you would still like to help us out with Kroger, there is a new way to do it!

Kroger has come up with a new program called the Kroger Rewards Program.

These programs are ways for you to help us raise money! Please be sure to take a look at the Kroger Rewards Program and participate. You can find all the details here:

Kroger Rewards Program

 

If you happen to see on any forms say something about Kroger Plus cards, please disregard. The Kroger Rewards Program is the only way to participate now.

 

Thank you in advance for participating!

2015 Membership Forms are up!

We are excited to see our membership grow year over year. Be sure to become a member for 2015 and enjoy all the benefits our members do! We offer scholarship opportunities, discounted clinic opportunities, show opportunities and more, plus we are a pretty cool group to be around;)

Lexington, KY (July 26th) – The inaugural Kentucky Dressage Association 5k Kearney Cancer Run and Fun Walk held May 25th in Lexington, KY, raised $8,900 for cancer research. The money raised will be used for specific cancer research under the direction of Dr. Paul Anthony Kearney, Chief of Trauma, at the UK Medical Center.

The event, which was named after former KDA member Mary Kearney who lost her battle with brain cancer in 2009, attracted more than 180 participants and awarded $1,000 in prize money donated by Kentucky Ale, including $250, $150 and $100 in awards to the top three male and female runners. Other sponsors included The Mt. Brilliant Family Foundation, Kevin & Vicki Warren, and Jim & Michelle Morehead.
