Mac’s Story

We want to express our thanks to Maclean and his parents, Marybeth and Kevin, for being the stars of this year’s scholarship video. When we first asked Mac to consider making the video his response was “who could resist this beautiful face?” Well, he was right, and it was a record-breaking scholarship drive. If you have not watched the video … this is his story – wonderfully told by the team from Dreamscapes Design Group.

Maclean (Mac) was born without disabilities. At two weeks old he contracted a virus that left him with cerebral palsy. Mac had previously attended the New Mexico Center for Therapeutic Riding and when his family mentioned that they were relocating to Connecticut, they were told about High Hopes.
