Roadsters Agility Club honoured our founder, instructor and friend, Barb Vanderheide, with a fund raiser in her memory.
Barb sadly passed away January 9, 2019 suffering from a rare brain disease called Progressive Supranuclear Palsy.
Barb started our Roadsters Agility club, and on her retirement we formed a non-profit society with many of Barb’s students still participating.
Prior to our club’s sanctioned AAC agility trial August 30, 2019, teams donated for the opportunity of a warm up run. These runs were open to all, including some very novice teams to reflect Barb’s belief in inclusiveness.
The club matched funds raised, and presented a cheque for $810.00 to the Therapeutic Riding Society, a group Barb strongly supported.
