S.T.R.O.N.G. Women Ride

The “Becoming S.T.R.O.N.G.” Project

Beginning in the Spring of 2018 The Steel Horse Sisterhood Charities (SHSC) launches the “BECOMING S.T.R.O.N.G.” project.  This effort will launch with the 2018 Rocky Mountain Summit and will begin raising money for the purpose of awarding educational grants to women to enable access to life-changing training to move from adversity to stability and a life filled with joy.  Awards are to be granted to women who apply and meet the outlined criteria.
“BECOMING S.T.R.O.N.G.” empowers women to transform their lives by building confidence, self-esteem and valuable life and career skills which, in turn, builds stronger communities and families.
