Each year, the MDHT Donation Derby promotes and supports a local or national charity program or project that fills a void in the community. Competitors, spectators and volunteers are encouraged to spread the word about the charity, donate, or sign up to help. Past charities include Platoon 22, the Retired Racehorse Project, Frederick County 4H Therapeutic Riding Program, Frederick Rescue Mission, and Toys for Tots.

This year, please join us in supporting Frederick Friends of Our County Animal Shelter with a donation of cash, check or supplies to support their wonderful charitable organization. Monetary donations will go to the Project Hope program and the supplies will go to the two programs that FFOCAS support outside of Project Hope - Fredrick County Animal Shelter/Adoption Center and Barn Cat Buddies.

In the spirit of giving, we’re giving out prizes! Prizes for ugly holiday sweaters, prizes for great costumes, and prizes for best spirit. Dress up yourself, your kids, your horse, your dog and your truck! The grand prize for Best Holiday Spirit will include your name on a perpetual trophy (and other neat stuff, too!).
