My story

[p]Hi, I’m George Baker and as you may know, my riding career came to an abrupt halt in February 2017 after a life-changing fall during a race in St Moritz, Switzerland.[/p][p]My accident led to many months of recuperation from a brain injury. The Injured Jockeys Fund swung into action and the help and support of their rehabilitation teams has allowed me to lead a normal and happy life. I was so honoured, therefore, to be invited to become a Trustee of the charity last year, as I am a simple testament to what their work achieves in supporting jockeys and their families. [/p][p]I know that tackling a marathon is a challenge for everyone, but as my balance is not what it was, I have had to learn to walk and run again. What will keep me going is the pledge I’ve made to raise funds for both the Injured Jockeys Fund and Racing Welfare. My life in racing has given me first-hand insight into the amazing work both charities do to support their beneficiaries working across the sport, and not just in the saddle. [/p][p]I am determined to finish the course, and to repay the faith and generosity of those who have agreed to donate to my charity fund – thank you so much.[/p][p]George[/p]
