Jump Canada fully supports the campaign by Equine Canada to raise funds for the 2014 World Equestrian Games set for Normandy, FRA next summer via the recently announced $20.14 for 2014 campaign.
Here is a statement released by JT Taylor, Elizabeth Bordeaux, and Mark Samuel of the Jump Canada Board:
Our team needs and deserves all of our support.
In fact, we are so strongly in support that we, the current and past Chairs of Jump Canada, are issuing personal challenges to everyone else involved in the sport!
Here is what we propose: Starting in January, we will donate $20.14 a month until August, when the WEGs begin. And we challenge all of our Jump Canada members and counterparts at the other disciplines to do the same.
JT Taylor hereby challenges the other discipline chairs to match his monthly contribution.
Elizabeth Bordeaux challenges all EC board and committee members to join in the fun.
Mark Samuel challenges all high performance athletes to match his offer.
And, Jump Canada athletes challenge athletes from all other disciplines (both Olympic and non-Olympic) to join the $20.14 challenge!
We hope all disciplines will step up to this worthy cause. And, we wish ALL of our disciplines the best of luck at the WEGs next summer!
