Harnessing Funds for Cancer Research

 

 

Racing Queensland is partnering with Women's Cancer Foundation and joining Team Teal in 2017 to raise funds for ovarian cancer research.

 

From 1 February until 11 March, more than 200 reinswomen across Australia are wearing teal coloured driving pants, striving to be the first across the line to secure donations for Women's Cancer Foundation.

 

Fifteen reinswomen in Queensland are taking on the challenge, with a donation of $600 up for grabs in each race during the campaign thanks to sponsors Racing Queensland, UBET, Albion Park Harness Racing Club and Redcliffe Harness Racing Club!
