NSW Racehorse Owners Association – Racing’s Night of Champions
On average 200 jockeys a year are injured, plus many others who work within the industry. Despite all the safeguards in place, the risk of a spinal cord injury is an ever present danger.
This is why Spinal Cord Injuries Australia was recently chosen at the charity for the NSW Racehorse Owners Associations (NSWROA) flag ship event, Racing’s Night of Champions, which took place on August 15, 2019.
Recognising this risk, the NSWROA wanted to give back and ensure that anyone who is injured, through horse racing or by any other means, receives the best possible care and support.
The Racing’s Night of Champions is the most prestigious charity awards night in Australian racing and provided an ideal opportunity for SCIA to raise awareness of the work that we do and much needed funds to help people with a spinal cord injury.
We would like to thank the following sponsors for their very generous support.
