Bella, daughter of Decibels co-founders Mark & Julia Dunning, is an amazing teen who loves horses and rides at the Red Acre Farm in Stow, Massachusetts. She also has Usher syndrome. Because of Usher syndrome, she has a profound hearing loss, two cochlear implants, and is losing her vision. Bella has received help from her school, her doctors, and numerous others, but counts the Red Acre Farm as one of her greatest resources. At the farm, Bella has increased her self-esteem and confidence, has improved her posture and balance and has made life-long friendships. The Red Acre Farm has generously offered to help Bella in a unique way; by hosting a horse show for the eighth year to benefit the Decibels Foundation.
This is a great opportunity to get together for a day of great riding, while making a big impact on the lives of children with hearing loss and their families. Over the past seven years, this event has raised over $120,000 to support children with hearing loss and their families. Your support of the Decibels Foundation is truly valued and will help ensure that this event is a success.
