TEAM TEAL TO MAKE ITS MARK IN 2024
The annual Team Teal campaign is back in 2024, launching six weeks of fundraising initiatives across the Queensland harness racing industry to support ovarian and other gynaecological cancer research. From February 1 to March 15, the annual Team Teal campaign will return, with the Queensland harness racing industry donating $200 on every occasion a reinswoman drives a winner in the Sunshine State.
In addition, all Queensland reinswomen will wear teal-coloured pants to highlight the campaign. In conjunction with WomenCan, Team Teal donations will support the Australian and New Zealand Gynaecological Oncology Group’s education and prevention program – Survivors Teaching Students – bringing ovarian cancer survivors into the classroom of medical students to share their experiences.
The funds will provide support for patients to access gynaecological cancer clinical trials, particularly in regional and remote areas, ensuring women have access to the best available care, irrespective of where they live.
Tabcorp will also contribute a further $200 for every triumph by a reinswoman in Queensland throughout the Team Teal campaign.
This year, trainers Anna Woodmansey and Shannon Price will lead the ladies as Queensland’s 2024 Team Teal ambassadors, with their drivers to don the famous Team Teal silks.
