Giving

 

The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show launched its giving to Texas Children's Hospital in 1947 with the very first gift to plan and build the hospital that opened its doors in 1954.  In 2014, the PIn Oak Charity Horse Show will donate $150,000 to Texas Children's.  Pin Oak completes its $400,000 commitment to Child LIfe at West Campus and launches its commitments to Sports Medicine and the next hospital - The Woodlands Campus. With commitments of $300,000 and $400,000 completed and a new pledge of $550,000 to the West Campus, our giving has reached $1.25 million for this fast-growing campus of Texas Children's.

Pin Oak Supports Sports Medicine Program and The Woodlands Campus

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Texas Children's Hospital and embark on a new level of giving, the Pin Oak Charity Horse Show has pledged $550,000 to the expanding Sports Medicine Program at Texas Children's Hospital and $100,000 to the new campus in The Woodlands that will open in 2017.  

Thank you to our supporters for making Pin Oak so much more than a horse show and enabling us to make gifts to the community that leave a lasting legacy from the heart of the equestrian community.

SPORTS MEDICINE PROGRAM and FELLOWSHIP

This comprehensive program combines the expertise of nationally known and respected pediatric and adolescent sports medicine specialists with innovative treatments and advanced equipment.  It’s a combination that offers unparalleled sports medicine care for athletes of all ages and levels. 


Under the leadership of Albert C. Hergenroeder, M.D., chief of the Adolescent Medicine Service and the Adolescent Medicine Clinic, and Joseph N. Chorley, M.D., physician in Adolsecent and Sports Medicine, Texas Children's Hospital has become known throughout the United States for its premier pediatric sports medicine program, and fellowship training has been, and will continue to be, critical to our efforts.

The Pediatric Sports Medicine fellowship at Texas Children’s is a one-year fellowship. Applicants have completed residency training in pediatrics or medicine and pediatrics.  Clinical experiences in the fellowship include adult and pediatric patients.  Since 1995, the Texas Children’s Sports Medicine fellowship has trained 16 fellows.  Eight of them are in private practice, while the other eight have joined major universities as faculty bringing with them the expertise they gained at Texas Children’s and touching the lives of more and more young athletes throughout the country.

Going forward, the Sports Medicine fellow will serve one full day each week at Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus and will be immersed in a curriculum that includes weekly conferences with an emphasis on exercise physiology, radiology, physical exam techniques, and a multitude of other primary care sports medicine issues. The fellow will also receive specific training in teaching principles in the classroom and at the bedside.  To further enhance the education experience, he or she will be a teaching assistant in the gross anatomy class for Baylor College of Medicine first-year medical students and will teach in the sports medicine elective for medical students.  The fellow will also present in the weekly curriculum noted above and will receive feedback from other participants.

The fellow is an integral member of the Sports Medicine team that provides expert care throughout Houston.  Clinical experiences at Lee and Chavez High Schools and serving as the head team physician at Davis High School are extraordinary opportunities for the fellow to interact with and help students who lack access to Sports Medicine specialty care. These services are provided free of charge.  The Sports Medicine team also offers physicals and sporting event coverage at the high school and collegiate level ( the University of Houston and Texas Southern University) for both men’s and women’s teams.  Also, the fellow is part of the medical team for the Houston Half and Full Marathon, the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K and the Texas Children’s Hospital Fun R

To recognize Pin Oak's gift to the Sports Medicine Program and establishement of the Sports Medicine Fellow, Texas Children's will name the Orthapedic Sports Medicine Gym for the famous horse show.

60 years and Growing - Texas Children's Hospital | The Woodlands 

As Texas Children's did in west Houston several years ago, they have identified a fast-growing pediatric population that is living more than 30 miles (and at least one hour away in traffic) from a dedicated pediatric emergency center and specialty inpatient care.  The children living in the vast area north of Spring up to Conroe—and east and west of these communities—need and deserve access to world class pediatric acute care close to home and family.  And with Texas Children’s new hospital in The Woodlands, that is exactly what they will have.  The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show is proud to be a part of the hospital's growth from the first gift in 1947 to build the first hospital, through today to expand the healing of sick children with Texas Children's Hospital.

Pin Oak Charity Horse Show Cast Room
Physical and occupational therapists create custom casts for infants, children and adolescents.  Some of the more common disorders requiring a cast are orthopedic injuries, sports injuries, equestrian injuries and acute or chronic neuromuscular problems.  This room houses the specialized equipment needed to make these casts.
