Celebrating a Decade of Impact: Marking 10 years of the See Differently OPK9 Program at our 2024 Graduation

In the last 10 years, the See Differently OPK9 program has achieved remarkable success in pairing 62 veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder with life-changing assistance dogs, providing support and a pathway forward.

At today's moving ceremony, we acknowledged and celebrated the hard work and commitment of our graduates as they start a new chapter with their OPK9 partners.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to our fundraisers, corporate partners, and volunteers for their ongoing support. Your contributions have been instrumental in the growth and success of the OPK9 program, enabling us to reach and assist more veterans in need.

Have you ever heard of barrel racing?

It's a rodeo event where a horse and a rider attempt to run a cloverleaf pattern around barrels in the fastest time. Now, imagine tackling it with just 7% vision—client Megan McLoughlin does exactly that!

In the video below, Megan shares the ins and outs of barrel racing and the challenges she faces when competing.
