The Harness Horse Youth Foundation’s annual fall fundraiser, Drive For Youth, is rapidly approaching, with an October 5 kickoff at The Red Mile. The event runs through October 11.

The Red Mile day will feature HHYF Trottingbred star Royal Attire and participants Jacob Zeiger and Maddy Lester leading post parades, as well as assistance from HHYF graduate and 2014 Sweet Karen Scholarship recipient Olivia Kimelman.

The Meadows will pony up on October 8 and 10 under the guidance of Heather Wilder from the MSOA. Hoosier Park horsemen, led by advocates Brandon Bates and Lisa Avenatti, will be asked to donate on October 10. The Pennsylvania Horsemen’s Association also recently sent a significant donation.

“We are especially pleased to have new interest from tracks and organizations joining this important effort,” said HHYF Executive Director Ellen Taylor. “We welcome the racing community of drivers, trainers, and owners from any track to participate and encourage horsemen to think outside the box to support our programs. HHYF is deeply committed to increasing awareness of racing as well as teaching bright young minds about the sport.”
