Miles of Smiles Foundation hasn't added a story.
The Foundation funds programs that take place at Miles Ranch in North Fort Myers, which focus on treating post- traumatic stress and other mental disabilities/disorders using equestrian therapy. Equestrian-assisted therapy is the use of horses in the evaluation and treatment of patients.
“Events like Tomstock X really make a difference in how we can assist local veterans who want help in improving their quality of life,” said Keith Doxie, President and Veterans Services Representative for the Foundation.
Tomstock founder and coordinator Matt Stachler is happy to help.
“It’s a lot of work to coordinate every year, but for the right reasons such as the Miles of Smiles Foundation, it is definitely worth the effort, especially when you see how many people’s lives are touched by their assistance,” he said.
To learn more about the event, how to donate or sponsor, visit tomstockfestival.com or www.facebook.coTomstock.
Tomstock started when two local firefighters decided to stage a one-day food and music festival to give back to the community. With the help of local support, it has become a great success and is now located on a generous landowner’s property in North Fort Myers.
The Miles of Smiles Foundation operates Miles Ranch, a not-for-profit 20-acre horse ranch in North Fort Myers, dedicated to equine-assisted psychotherapy for military veterans. Founded in 2007, Miles of Smiles Foundation is named in honor of Miles Doxie, son of Gail and Keith Doxie, who passed away May 25, 2006, at the age of 17 — two weeks before he was to leave for a career in the U. S. Air Force. They have since dedicated a good portion of their lives assisting veterans who suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) via equine assisted psychotherapy and equine assisted learning programs. In addition to working with veterans, the foundation works with children with mental health, behavioral & physical disabilities.
