Wellington, FL – February 4, 2017 – The team of riders Shane Sweetnam, Lindsey Tomeu, and Sedona Chamblee, team sponsors Spy Coast & Preston, and corporate sponsor Equine Tack & Nutritionals earned the top prize of $150,000 for Urban Youth Impact Saturday night in the 8th annual Great Charity Challenge, presented by Fidelity Investments®, at the 2017 Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF).

Palm Beach International Equestrian Center was a packed house on Saturday night as spectators cheered on teams in the Great Charity Challenge, presented by Fidelity Investments®, which has donated more than $10 million to Palm Beach County charities in eight years.

Achievement Centers staff were among the packed crowd to cheer their Aladdin-themed riders, sponsored by Swede Ventures and The Benjamin Family. Ranking a respectable 7th place among the 35 teams, the three young riders representing Achievement Centers won $55,000 for children and families in Delray Beach and the surrounding area. Achievement Centers is honored to be a part of the 2017 event.

The competition is held as a pro-am team relay with each team made up of junior and amateur riders competing side by side with top professionals. The event also featured a fun theme, as riders (and their horses) dressed up as characters from their favorite animated movies.
