With the help of our sponsors, runners and volunteers, the Permission to Start Dreaming Foundation is delighted to once again support Rainier Therapeutic Riding (RTR) and the work they do! Our founder, Leslie Mayne, presented a check to Rob Woelk and Debbie Fisher of RTR at Serenity Farms in Yelm, and again was able to reconnect with the great staff and healing animals of their wonderful organization.

Today on President Lincoln's birthday, February 12, 2015, President Obama signed into law Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention For American Veterans Act in the East Room of the White House.
Clay Hunt, a decorated Marine who served with distinction in Iraq and Afghanistan, struggled with depression and post-traumatic stress after coming home. Sadly, Clay’s life ended much too soon when he tragically committed suicide in 2011 at the young age of 28. It was a terrible loss and a painful reminder at how much more support our Soldiers and Veterans need upon returning from the battlefield.
While continuing to lift the spirits of America's troops and their families, ever since the very beginning the USO Northwest (USONW) was right there to help our organization take off.
As we're celebrating our landmark 5th year, the USONW is now celebrating their 74th anniversary, and with quite an accomplishment to start the new year!
