Monday 26 April 2010

Yesterday Fiona Needham, Sue Carson and Richard Hammill joined the British Horseracing Team who took part in the London Marathon, running in aid of the Spinal Injuries Association and the Tristram Ricketts Appeal.

Craig Benton (British Racing School)                    
Susan Carson (Catterick Racecourse)
Harriet Collins (JSC Sport)

Jon Ryan (BHA)

Chris Stickels (Ascot Racecourse)                    
Gerard de Waal (Racing UK)
Michael Wilson (Racing UK)
 
The Spinal Injuries Association would like to thank the whole team for their dedication; donors for their support; and James Oldring for organising the team. Over £28,000 has been raised so far - a fantastic achievement.  
 
Tristram, who died sadly in November 2007, was one of the most popular and respected figures in British Racing.  In his memory, an appeal is underway to raise £150,000 for the Spinal Injuries Association Academy, which provides a forum for expert discussion of research and medical innovation as well as offering training and education expertise, thus playing a vital role in the future betterment of the lives of paralysed people.
 
Jon Ryan, BHA Director of Communications (and competitor), said:
“The response has been incredible both from those taking part and the hundreds who have contributed by way of sponsorship. The gain is there for the Tristram Ricketts Appeal and the SIA, and now the pain is imminent for those of us mad enough to take on 26.2miles around London on what is forecast to be the hottest day of the year so far!”
