In the last week of July 2016, Turku will play host to a truly royal event!
The Finnhorse Trotting Championship are held in Turku on 29–31 July 2016. Finland's biggest trotting event are sure to bring excitement to Turku, by offering a weekend filled with a cavalcade of events for visitors of every age, culminating in a mega-celebration.
Before and during the event there will be an opportunity to pay it forward. The Metsämäki trotting track gained a new resident: a trotting horse born in 2012 and named Kiss My Turku. Shares in the horse will be made available for sale to local businesses. A single share is 300 euros. The idea behind selling shares is to collect money through the Association of Friends of the University Children's Hospitals for donation to the Children's Clinic at the Turku University Hospital. In future, there are plans for the horse to perform social functions, such as day care centre group visits to meet Kiss My Turku in her home stable.

How can I help?
Shares in charity horse Kiss My Turku will be sold to local businesses, groups of friends and even private persons. The price of a single share is 300 €. The proceeds collected from the sale of shares are donated to the Children's Clinic at the Turku University Hospitals through the Association of Friends of the University Children's Hospitals. Shareholders will not be subject to any other costs - just a single investment will do! The shares will help pay for the training and care of the horse, with all remaining money (over 70 %) being donated to the Children's Clinic as well as the horse's race winnings.
