Welcome to Michael Murphy Para Trust (MMPT)


       My dream is to compete in the Paralympics and Win a Gold Medal.

         I am seeking sponsorship & donations to help make my dream a reality.

                     Could you help make that dream come true?


Never thought I'd ever have to write this. Many of you may know that my big brother and best friend James Murphy has passed away in a tragic accident. He is and forever will be a massive inspiration to me and many other people. he was the nicest and genuinely one of the best guys out there...You have given me and so many others such amazing memories, you always had a smile on your face and wouldn't rest until everyone around you was smiling. I'll miss you more than anything bro!

            My name is Michael Murphy and my story in a nut shell is:

I was born with Dejerine-Sottas a rare and progressive disorder that causes muscle weakness, lack of motor control, loss of sensation and no saving reactions. However, this has given me an amazing opportunity to represent my country in Para Dressage. I am aiming for The Paralympics. I have a very special horse Rohan (Roo) - who really looks after me. Being able to ride and feel free when you cannot walk independently and being able to compete never mind represent my country is uplifting. However, I cannot achieve this without your help! It costs £20,000 just to keep Roo and in the region of £5,000 every time I represent my country.

                       All information on how to donate on The Donation Page.

  If you can donate fantastic if not thank you for taking the time to read my story.

Thank you;    Michael Murphy.


Michael has so many companies supporting him with equestrian equipment and truly believing in him. And he is very grateful to all of them, however he still does require financial help!                                                         

At the age of 14 Michael made history by becoming The Youngest in The World to win a Senior 2* International in Para  Dressage. Showing at such at a young age he had the grit and determination to make The Paralympics. However, Michael still has to rely on self funding to keep and compete his very special horse Roo.

 While doing all of this he is studying Biological Sciences at University of Warwick.

                            Please help this remarkable young man if you can!
