It's race day today. At 5.40 pm I make my debut at the Best Western Hotels & Macmillan Ride of their Lives charity race. I can't tell you how excited I am.
I've always wanted to be a jockey and Coral and Jonjo O'Neill are helping make this childhood dream become a reality. Its been incredibly challenging and a great learning experience and there are still some tough challenges ahead.
I've put in the graft and worked with some really generous people over the last 13 weeks. Now I've passed and am ride-ready.
Its all for a great cause and means we can all raise some much-needed funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. If you can donate I would be really grateful. I hope to see many of you at York Racecourse today for a brilliant bit of support. Your generosity means so much.
Fundraising is hugely important to Macmillan. Without people doing events, running marathons, climbing mountains, and donating in all the other ways that you can, Macmillan wouldn’t exist. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs.
