  • Access Carroll

    "The Celtic Canter is a fantastic community event for all ages, and is a perfect compliment to the health care mission of Access Carroll in ensuring residents most in need have access to integrated  medical, dental, and behavioral health care.  Funding from the Celtic Canter is considered unrestricted and most precious in that Access Carroll can apply these funds to the most needed areas and seek other match funding that requires a direct community involvement.  Being a recipient of the Celtic Canter is both an honor and gives the community at large the opportunity to learn more about our organization while participating in a healthy activity! Every registration at the Celtic Canter impacts the community for better health!"
