On 9 April 2012, Easter Monday, racing icons Lance O’Sullivan, Simon Cooper, Andre Klein and Jason Fleming will begin a run around all 51 licensed thoroughbred racecourses in New Zealand to raise money for The Catwalk Spinal Cord Injury Trust.

The Catwalk Spinal Injury Trust is a charity committed to raising funds to support the body of scientific opinion which says a cure for spinal cord injury will be found.

The run will begin early morning on Easter Monday at Gore Racecourse and will finish 6 days later on Saturday, 14 April 2012 at Ellerslie Racecourse in Auckland on Easter Handicap Race Day. The runners will arrive at Pukekura Raceway on Day 3 (11 April) at 5.25pm.

Please support the efforts of Lance, Simon, Andre and Jason and donate funds to The Catwalk Spinal Cord Injury Trust.

Donations can be made at: www.fundraiseonline.co.nz/trackwalk/

You are also invited to join Lance, Simon, Andre and Jason on their run around Pukekura Raceway or in the least, turn up to show your support for their efforts. After the run, Taranaki Thoroughbred Racing members are also invited to attend a stable visit followed by a complimentary BBQ and refreshments. Interested members can RSVP to Nicola if they would like to attend:
06 757 5759
021 445 753

When you donate at the above address, you will be asked to nominate your Race Club. Please ensure you nominate Taranaki Thoroughbred Racing.

All donors can also enter a competition to predict the total time taken to run round the 51 racecourses (e.g. 51 x 12 minutes = total time 612 minutes or 10 hours and 12 minutes).

Many jockeys and track riders have suffered spinal injuries in the pursuit of their careers, so please show your support by donating to this Trust.

You are also invited to follow Lance, Simon, Andre and Jason on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.
