Raising Funds on Mother's Day

96-year-old Female Equestrian Still Riding!

Funds from "Dinnie and Dooley" Ride-a-thon on Mother's Day weekend to support eating disorders.

May 9, 2017, Toronto / London–One of Canada's first female equestrians and international horse judge Dorinda (Dinnie) Greenway, age 96, will ride her retired Canadian Sport Horse Randule (Dooley) to raise funds for eating disorders on Saturday, May 13, 2017, Mother’s Day weekend. The ride is also timed to raise awareness for the upcoming 2nd Annual World Eating Disorders Action Day (June 2, 2017).

The courageous Dinnie and Dooley will be riding into town from their farm in Arva, Ontario to pick up groceries at their local Loblaw's in London, Ontario. Dinnie, who lost her granddaughter (Michale, age 27) to anorexia, is collecting pledges to help those suffering from a disease that kills 20 per cent of its victims.
