Reinswomen join the fight against ovarian cancer
Reinswomen from every Australian state will take part in Team Teal from 1 February until 11 March 2017. Each time a female driver wins a race during the campaign, $200 is donated to Women’s Cancer Foundation by the controlling bodies in each state, along with other corporate and club sponsors.
Team Teal is a major awareness and fundraising campaign for the Foundation, the initiative originally conceived by three passionate members of the harness racing industry, Duncan McPherson OAM, Michael Taranto, and Jim Connolly. The campaign is now in its third year, with original partner Harness Racing Victoria being joined again by Harness Racing New South Wales for the second year, and welcoming Racing Queensland, Harness Racing SA, Tasracing and Racing & Wagering WA as part of Team Teal for the first time.
Tabcorp has also once again joined Team Teal, matching donations made by Harness Racing Victoria and Harness Racing New South Wales. The Foundation also welcomes UBET, donating $200 for wins in Queensland, along with Albion Park Harness Racing Club and Redcliffe Harness Racing Club, also donating $200 for each win at their respective meets.
