Jockey Robbie Walsh is fundraising for Contact

Thank you Robbie!

We are delighted that jockey Robbie Walsh is fundraising for Contact over the next two years. 

Robbie rides for trainer Ian Williams of Dominion Stables in Birmingham. He races across the country at high profile races. 

Robbie heard about Contact because his son Leighton, aged five, has Congenital Hyperinsulinism, an extremely rare condition that means he has abnormally high levels of insulin. Leighton is one of the very few in the world with this condition. He is on medication at the moment to manage it, but the medication can cause liver failure. 

Robbie chose to partner with us because he wants to do what he can to support families in a similar situation. 

How is Robbie showing his support? 

Robbie, Ian Williams and several other friends from the stables have signed up to do a skydive in aid of Contact. You can sponsor Robbie at his JustGiving page

And not only that – Robbie is helping raise awareness of the vital work we do by wearing sponsored Contact-branded silks on every race day!
