Multi-Olympian Karen O'Connor will be attending Jump for Hope, a fundraising event for the Equestrian Aid Foundation (EAF), on Friday, September 19, 2014 at the HAUS nightclub in New York City. O'Connor will be representing the sport of eventing when she joins other leading equestrians to raise money for horsemen and equine-related professionals suffering from illness or catastrophic injuries. The EAF is dedicated to helping people of all ages and from all backgrounds and disciplines, offering funding for medical, rehabilitation and essential expenses. Their goal is to empower their recipients and provide the necessary tools to overcome adversity.
The evening will be hosted by HAUS' Margaret Horowitz and Kevin Crawford, and attended by riders from other disciplines including Nic Roldan, Nick Dello Joio, Jamie Krauss Hess, Jenny Oz LeRoy, Stacey Werner, Susan Cowie, Kate Conover, Joni Maloney, Erin Stewart, and Michelle Grayson.
"You never know what lies around the corner in life as I know from first hand experience. Being severely injured can have catastrophic consequences. Knowing that the EAF is there if you are injured and that you're not alone, gives everyone in the industry a measure of comfort and I will be eternally grateful for the support they have given me," said O'Connor. "Please take this opportunity to join me in supporting this wonderful cause by purchasing tickets."
