Unfortunately my plans to travel to the UK with Adelaide Hill did not eventuate due to Adelaide
receiving a minor injury at Equestriad. We had hoped with treatment that we might have been able to continue with our Campaign to Rio. Although we believe the treatment to have been beneficial to Adelaide’s recovery, time was against us. For the future of Adelaide and our fellow Australian team members we have withdrawn from team selection.
I’m extremely overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity and support over the last few months not only in the fundraising efforts for Campaign Rio but in the love, support and beautiful messages after the tragic accident of Caitlyn Fischer. Understandably it has been an extremely difficult time for our family.
We are currently in the process of contacting everyone personally that has been involved in our
fundraising efforts. We will be offering refunds to those that had made donations through the
mycause page. We are currently liaising with Equestrian Australia in relation to the donations made through the Australian Sports Foundation.
The money raised at the Campaign Rio fundraising weekend is being kept in the Christine Bates -
Campaign Rio bank account untouched until we have contacted everyone involved.
Thanks again for the amazing support.
Christine & Adelaide.
