'Team Teal' campaign 2017

In 2014, Duncan McPherson, OAM, Michael Taranto and Jim Connolly, all passionate harness racing owners and breeders, conceived an awareness and fundraising campaign that connected the harness racing industry in Victoria with Women's Cancer Foundation.  The campaign is known as Team Teal and raises funds for gynacological cancer research and research nurses.  It begins annually during February, Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and showcases the colour teal, the ovarian cancer awareness colour.

Team Teal became a national campaign in 2017 with 183 reinswomen wearing teal driving pants in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, Western Australia and Canberra between 1 February and 11 March, each striving to cross the finishing line first and secure donations for Women's Cancer Foundation.
