An Iowan will be traveling by horseback from the Mississippi to Missouri River to raise awareness for a disease that has no cure. Tammy Mohr will start Trottin’ for Taylor on Saturday and has set aside seventeen days for the ride. Mohr’s grandson is inflicted with Batten Disease, a rare incurable degenerative disease that has left Taylor Mohr bedridden, blind and unable to move or speak.
The ride is to raise awareness and donations for research. Dr. Beverly Davidson with the University of Iowa is researching Infantile and Late-Infantile forms of this disease and all funds raised will go to the University to aid in their research.
This ride across Iowa will travel through Kalona where they will stay at the Sale Barn and through South English where they will stay at Ken and Barb Harris Farm.
Please make donations payable to:
