Birthday Blessings

November 30, 2016

Since 2005, volunteer extraordinaire Kathy Keelan Pew, has donated her birthday to the Cheff (Ride-a-Thon) - to the tune of nearly $15,000 ($2,475 in 2016 alone!)
Each year, Kathy requests that if her friends and family wish to do something for her in honor of her birthday, that they support her in our Ride-A-Thon.

"Every year, I start out a little reluctant to hit up all my friends, family, and acquaintances, but every year I get thanks and compliments for doing so. So, I just keep doing it!"
Kathy and her beloved horse, Dan (pictured) have been taking the Ride-A-Thon trails together since the beginning. "He's 25 and I'm 67, so this year, we're 92!"

For Kathy, volunteering her time at Cheff is a natural extension of her passion for horses. Kathy keeps her own horses next door at the Battle Creek Hunt Club where she is an active member.
When asked why she continues coming back to Cheff, she replied: "(It's a) natural thing to do, given the relationship the Battle Creek Hunt and the Cheff Center have. Also, it is a pleasure to walk in there and be greeted by the welcoming, professional staff. It is a very well-run organization that knows how to keep the fun in all you do. You also make me feel most appreciated,"

We're thrilled to have Kathy on our team and are humbled and honored to be a part of her birthday every year.
