EMBRACE THE RACE®, The Apparel for the Horse Racing Lifestyle™, has announced plans to sponsor Jeremy Edge’s walk from Belmont Park to Saratoga Race Course. Edge, a regular contributor for HRTV, has undertaken the walk to benefit two horse racing related charities which are the Permanently Disabled Jockey Fund and Anna’s House. Edge is scheduled to start his journey on June 12th from the finish line at Belmont Park and complete the 190 mile trek within two weeks, ending the trip in the hometown of EMBRACE THE RACE® - Saratoga Springs, NY
EMBRACE THE RACE® will provide Jeremy with free apparel during his trip including some of the lifestyle brand’s shirts, hats and jackets. In addition, a portion of all sales at http://www.embracetherace.com during Jeremy’s walk will be donated to the charities.
“The people represented by these two fine charities are some of the key participants in the sport of horse racing, and we are pleased to support Jeremy’s effort to raise money for them. He truly is exhibiting a passion for horse racing,’’ said Mike DeAnzeris, President of EMBRACE THE RACE®.
