School’s Out and Hang Tough has got you covered:
A Peek into Summer Fun with Hang Tough
By: Virginia Scott, Summer Intern
Hellooo Summer! School is finally out and you know what that means: summer fun can finally begin! Still in need of plans for your family? Don’t worry, Hang Tough has you covered. This week’s post will highlight a few of the amazing events HTF will be hosting within the next few months. So get comfy and let’s dive right in.
Before we jump into the deep end with all of the exciting summer events Hang Tough has to offer its hero families, I first want to highlight the success of the Open House at Moccasin Stables this past week. Moccasin Stables is located off Veteran Memorial Drive and boasts a number of services to clients from in and around the Tallahassee area. One of the featured services, and the one most closely aligned with Hang Tough Foundation, is Pure Soul: Therapeutic Riding Center. On Sunday, May 26th, Moccasin Stables opened its gates to Hang Tough hero families so we could get a peek into all that goes into equine assisted-activities therapy. The event boasted pony rides for all the kiddos and Kona Ice to help beat the heat! For more information on Moccasin Stables and its equine therapy programs, please visit https://www.moccasinstablesllc.com/equine-therapeutic/ or call the Hang Tough Office.
The Open House at Moccasin Stables was just the beginning of Hang Tough’s summer fun. There are three awesome events coming up in June that we would love to see as many of our families participate in as possible.
The first event, coming up on June 8th, that our hero families are all invited to join in is our Family Fun Event at the Challenger Learning Center and IMAX Theater. The theater will be completely reserved for Hang Tough families and there will be a private, sensory-friendly showing of Super Power Dogs for all in attendance. After the movie, make sure to stick around for some cuddles with TMH Animal Therapy Dogs! Please make sure to RSVP for this event by June 5th. Sign-up link: https://forms.gle/M8V2qYkrY7pEdr1x5
The next event is our Teen Hangout on June 11th from 5:30-7:30pm. Our heroes and sidekicks aged 12-18 are all invited to grab their chef hats and join us at Dave’s Pizza Garage for an evening filled with making (and eating) delicious pizza! You can RSVP for this event at: https://forms.gle/VyDucpUP4yTViwPGA
June will conclude on a SUPER note as all of our Hero families are invited to join Han Tough at Infinity Con Tallahassee at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center on June 29th. Hang Tough has the pleasure of hosting the ‘Cool Down’ Zone to help create a more inclusive environment for everyone in attendance. So grab your superhero costumes and crime fighting skills and come join the fun at Infinity Con at the end of the month!

And finally, a quick look into the future brings lions and tigers and bears – Oh My! Hang Tough’s July Parents Day Out is going down-under with a Safari-themed night for our heroes and sidekicks. More information on this event will be coming very soon so make sure to check back in!
That’s all for now, I’ll catch up with you next week for another edition of The Current. In the meantime, remember to #HangToughTogether.
