Joseph Murphy and Fred Scala, representing team Ireland in the Virtual Eventing 5* competition, will be raising money for the Mater Foundation to help frontline health workers battle the Covid crisis. The Mater Foundation makes a real difference to patients by providing services and funding equipment that otherwise would not exist. Through their grants programme they dare to go beyond the traditional fields of funding to ensure that patients attending all areas of the hospital receive the best we can offer.
Virtual Eventing was the brainchild of Rachel Wakefield of Uptown Eventing. After watching a video on Facebook of a nurse from the North of England who was helping to fight the Coronavirus, Rachel decided to use the power of the Eventing community to create an International Virtual 5* Event to raise as much money as possible to help those on the front line around the world. We have an all-star global line up with over 50 world-class riders from a dozen countries including; William Fox-Pitt GB, Boyd Martin USA, Gemma Tattersall GB, Laura Collett GB, Megan Jones AUS, Joe Meyer NZL, Joseph Murphy IRL and Carlos Paro BRA.
