Macmillan Cancer Support Fundraising Events

As you may be aware, Farmer Karl has been selected to compete in the Macmillan Cancer Support Ride of Their Lives 2024. He is one of only 12 people who have been selected to train as jockeys and to compete in a race at York Racecourse to raise valuable funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

You may recall that Karl also competed in this prestigious and challenging race in 2019, when he raised over £20,000 in memory of his father, Colin Avison. Colin passed away in 2006 from a rare and aggressive brain tumour.

On June 15th, 2024, Karl will make history when he becomes the first person in the UK’s biggest charity raceday’s 52-year history to compete in the iconic race for a second time.

This time, he plans to raise even more money (£25,000) to celebrate his recovery from Prostate Cancer in 2023.

Follow this page for information about Karl (aka Karlos Dettori's) training and fundraising events and to donate to Karl's Just Giving page.
