Students raise money for Hold Your Horses
The fourth-grade class at Twin Cities German Immersion School presented $615.22 to Janet Weisberg of Hold Your Horses in late March. The 14 students sold bracelets made in Kenya to earn the money to donate to the Independence, Minn., nonprofit, which offers equine-assisted services to people with disabilities. Anne Boehm (at top), school mentor adviser, said the students chose Hold Your Horses because one of the students, Hadley Ninow, has a sister who receives services at the group’s facilities.
