Wellington, FL – January 23, 2013 – Be a part of Olympic Gold Medalist Nick Skelton’s newly added team for the FTI Consulting Great Charity Challenge presented by Fidelity Investments (FTI GCC) on Saturday, January 26, 2013. This is a chance to ride in an historic event with the highest purse in show jumping. Two amateurs or juniors have the opportunity to join in the spirit of giving and compete on behalf of one of 34 Palm Beach County charities to win part of $1.5 million dollars. Two spots are open on Nick Skelton’s team – one rider to compete at the 1.10m level and a second rider to compete at the 1.20m level in a relay race on Saturday evening.

For a tax deductible donation of $10,000 to the Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund, the new team member will have the thrilling opportunity to ride side by side with one of show jumping’s greatest riders while contributing to a worthy cause in one of the FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival’s proudest moments.

Riders will have this chance on a first come, first served basis at each level of 1.10m and 1.20m. Please contact Anne Caroline Valtin at 561-784-1133 to sign up for this team!

It is only with the generous support of the team and corporate sponsors and riders that in its fourth year the FTI GCC has become one of the largest and broadest based philanthropic events in the county. The event will have had a 4.2 million dollar impact on more than 80 Palm Beach County Charities including the Wellington community and its schools.
