LEARN MORE ABOUT US
Irish Injured Jockeys was set up in 2014 to increase awareness and raise vital funds to support our injured jockeys. Funds raised through Irish Injured Jockeys go to the injured riders who are in most need of support.
YOU CAN DONATE HERE
There are lots of ways that one can help from buying some merchandise from our online shop collection, making a donation, volunteering to help out at events or putting a legacy in place. Once approved by Irish Injured Jockeys you can also set up a Just Giving Fundraising page.
