18 September 2014, Caen, France ~ Four years in the making, the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ in Normandy came to a close on September 7, 2014. The fifteen-day event brought top competitors from more than 76 countries and attracted a crowd of over 565,000 spectators. As one of only four charities chosen, JustWorld International was able to benefit from the unparalleled opportunity to gain worldwide visibility and promote their mission at the quadrennial event.
Hannah Selleck, a well-respected equestrian competitor and daughter of American Actor Tom Selleck was chosen by the organizing committee to represent the Games as an official World Equestrian Games Ambassador. While at the Games, Selleck worked diligently to assist JustWorld in furthering their mission by assisting in promotional activities, media involvement, and VIP events.
“Caen was incredible. JustWorld was centrally located in the Games Village which welcomed thousands of people from all over the world. The social events added to the experience, more exposure and plenty of opportunity to meet and greet,” Selleck said of her time at the Games. “I’m excited about being a part of JustWorld’s efforts and look forward to upcoming events and a chance to go on a project trip.”
As owner and operator of Descanso Farm, Hannah Selleck is combining her equestrian knowledge with her desire to develop top sport horses. Over the past decade, the emerging young talent has made a name for herself in the equitation and jumper disciplines.
JustWorld International acts as a catalyst for positive change in the developing world by working with local partner organizations to provide basic education, nutrition, health, hygiene, and vocational programs for children in impoverished communities in Honduras, Cambodia, Guatemala, and Colombia.
