Walk With Us!
“The joy and peace that is felt at Morven Park can be witnessed in the face of my son, as he rides! A truly heartfelt thank you goes out to each volunteer who makes a difference in both of our lives. I am overcome with the belief that the world IS a beautiful, kind place as I watch the many individuals who touch our lives, and our hearts, each week as they walk beside him on this majestic, untouched land!“ — An LTR Parent
