Gwinnett Braves Award December Grant to Parkwood Farms Therapy Center



The Gwinnett Braves have awarded their $1,000 grant for the month of December to Parkwood Farms Therapy Center, Inc. of Snellville, GA.  The “Season of Giving” themed grant is designed to assist organizations that benefit youth, education or sports programming.

Parkwood Farms Therapy Center, Inc. is a multi-discipline therapy center located in Snellville, Georgia. We offer non-traditional therapies both in a clinical setting and Therapeutic riding and Equine Assisted Activities, as our signature program. Dr. Peterson is the Special Olympics Equestrian coach for Gwinnett County and Parkwood Farms is the training facility for the team.

They also have Chiropractic services, Bio-Medical/Defeat Autism Now! Intervention, Bio-Cleanse, Far Infrared Sauna, mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT), and Nutritional counselling on-site.

Their programs provide therapies for children with special needs including autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, emotional-behavioral problems and learning disabilities. Riders start at age 2 and there is no age limit.

The grant awarded to Parkwood Farms will be applied to the purchase of new equipment for the Equestrian Program, including new helmets, saddle blankets, saddles and other riding gear.  This new equipment will help keep therapy riders safe and comfortable for years to come.
