WalkerHughes Insurance Names Reins of Life Charity of the Quarter

5/15/2024 | Bailey Thompson

We are excited to announce that WalkerHughes Insurance is proudly partnering with Reins of Life as our agency's ‘Charity of the Quarter’ in Quarter 2 of 2024. 

About our Referral Program

At WalkerHughes Insurance, there is no higher compliment than a referral. A referral indicates that we have met the mark for our customers and that they are satisfied with the service provided. We are pleased when our customers trust us enough to recommend us to those closest to them. We know how important friends and family members are, and we promise to treat yours as if they were our own! 

For every customer referring friends and family members that complete a no-obligation insurance review, we will send you a $5 coffee e-gift card as a token of our appreciation! As part of our referral program, we will also make a matching $5 donation to our agency’s ‘Charity of the Quarter’. The purpose of this program is to help organizations close to the hearts of our employees while providing our customers the opportunity to not only receive a coffee on us, but to also help a worthy cause by referring their friends and family. In addition, this also gives us the opportunity to promote awareness of these organizations in our communities through our online presence. 

Why Reins of Life?

Reins of Life was nominated by WalkerHughes team member, Amanda Freehauf, as our agency’s Charity of the Quarter. Amanda is a Personal Lines Account Manager out of our Mishawaka office and very passionate about supporting her local community. One of Amanda's favorite past times includes riding horses and watching her daughter show sheep, so the incredible work that Reins of Life is doing in the local community was a perfect alignment with Amanda's passions!

About Reins of Life 

Reins of Life began their non-profit work in 1978 to provide therapeutic riding lessons to individuals with disabilities in St. Joseph County. Reins of Life started out having 16 riders, doing their sessions in backyards, and borrowing equipment. Now the organization has 2 Indiana locations, one being in Michigan City and the other in South Bend making up 76 acres and serving over 450 people a month. Some of the horses in their barns are named Bud, Rocky Road, Fay, and Bandit!

Their mission is to improve the quality of life for children and adults with disabilities through equine-assisted therapy.

Their vision is to promote the mental, physical, emotional, and social growth of all involved in the program. They strive to educate the community regarding the benefits of riding as therapy, and the abilities of children and adults with disabilities. Their goal is to improve the attitudes of society toward those with disabilities.
