Amazing. We’re already halfway through 2019. How did that even happen?
As President of ROC the Standardbred, I constantly find myself feeling like we aren’t making progress. But, honestly, I am proud of what’s been accomplished so far, both by the group.
So far, ROC the Standardbred has:
Officially become a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Launched our Breed Ambassador Program. It has been a learning process as we’ve rolled it out. We’re a little behind, but that’s perfectly fine! Several of our dedicated ambassadors are making consistent social media posts and raising awareness. And, that’s the whole idea!
Held a very successful clothing campaign that has funded our Breed Ambassador Program.
Attended a large event (WNY Equifest) where we had a booth and two presentations!
Have started to develop a curriculum to present to 4H groups, with hopes to educate the next wave of Standardbred owners. (We currently have three 4H groups interested!)
Reached over 5000 hits on our website without any paid advertising!
There is so much more I want to see us accomplish. Reach for the stars, right? I remain eternally grateful for everyone who has stepped up and helped. They know who they are. And, we’re always looking for Standardbred enthusiasts to help us get things done. If you’re interested in helping us in our mission, please reach out!
