Bettering the quality of life for backstretch workers

News & Highlights

CTHF AWARDED GRANT FROM THE THOROUGHBRED CHARITIES OF AMERICA

Our foundation is pleased to announce that we have just been notified that we are the recipients of a generous Grant from the Thoroughbred Charities of America (“TCA”).

The TCA, like the CTHF, is dedicated to improve the lives of those who care for the horses.  The TCA also is focused on improving the lives of the horses themselves — a worthy endeavor.

On behalf of all backstretch workers, we thank the TCA for their generosity and promise that the Grant money will used to make life, in general, more enjoyable for the hard working backstretch workers!

FITNESS MEMBERSHIPS AVAILABLE

The CTHF is now offering month-to-month fitness memberships at nearby fitness clubs near Santa Anita, Los Alamitos and Golden Gate Fields.  Eligible workers simply need to visit their local CTHF clinic, pay a $10 copayment and the CTHF will pay the balance.  There is no ongoing obligation and members can cancel whenever they want.  Signups for the upcoming month are usually due one week prior to the start of the next month.  For questions, visit your local clinic or call Aracely or Angela at (626) 446-0169.

WANT TO RECEIVE CTHF NEWS AND ALERTS?

The CTHF has begun using text messages to alert workers of the latest news and upcoming events, be it fitness memberships, mammogram screenings, flu shot notifications, etc.  If you are not currently receiving such messages and would like to, phone Aracely or Angela at the Santa Anita CTHF clinic and they will add your name. 

INSURED WORKERS CAN BE SEEN AT OUR CLINICS

As more eligible workers (active CHRB license only required) have signed up for various medical insurance programs, there seems to be some confusion over clinic visits.  Having insurance does not prevent a worker or a worker’s family from utilizing one of our clinics.  The insurance only comes into play if the patient requires an outside referral.
