WINDSOR, England, July 27–Muhammad Ali will make a special appearance at the Alltech World Equestrian Games Gala Night at the Alltech FEI European Jumping and Dressage Championships 2009 at Windsor Castle Aug. 25-30.

Ali hopes his trip will raise awareness for the recently founded Alltech-Muhammad Ali Center Global Education and Charitable Fund.

The Fund, which was announced in May during Alltech’s International Animal Health and Nutrition Symposium, aims to produce, promote and support the educational and humanitarian goals and efforts of both institutions. The goals of the Fund are to provide leadership and character education; educational scholarships for arts; natural science and humanitarian endeavours; elementary school science laboratories; relief and support during world crises; and encouragement in the pursuit of excellence and personal greatness.

The Alltech World Equestrian Games Gala Night is a celebration of Kentucky and serves as a prelude to the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2010 Sept. 25 to Oct. 10. The Gala Night will feature a para-equestrian demonstration, an FEI discipline which will be included for the first time at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2010
