This fundraiser is for our dear friends Kevin and Dianna (Flaherty) Babington and their teen aged daughters Gweneth and Marielle. Kevin, an accomplished Olympic equestrian, was competing at The Hamptons Classic on Friday and was thrown from a horse suffering catastrophic spinal cord injuries and is now unable to move. As you can imagine, the medical bills and family needs are already enormous and will continue to mount as the family income stream has now been substantially impacted. Earlier the same day that he was injured, Kevin and Dianna had made sure that their Wellington Florida barn was opened up to accept all horses who were in need of shelter from Hurricane Dorian. These are kind people who selflessly did for others and now need our help. Kevin is a humble man of humble means, who rides for a living and has spent his entire life helping other people and animals. Even if you don’t know Dianna or Kevin, in honor of their giving spirit to people and animals that they didn’t know, keep them in your prayers, send them positive energy and please consider making a financial contribution to show them your love and help them pay the staggering medical costs as they navigate a long and uncertain road. This campaign has been started by Kathy Gilbert and Kid Kelly (friends of the Babingtons) and we are working in coordination with Sissy Wickes (of The Plaid Horse Magazine) campaign on Facebook. Funds donated through GoFundMe will be placed in a Special Needs Trust for the benefit of Kevin Babington, and a family Trust for the benefit of Gweneth, Marielle and Dianna which will be overseen by Kevin's dear friend Colm McGuckian as Trustee.
