RQ gets behind National Volunteers Week

Queensland’s racing industry is supported by almost 7700 volunteers that give their time and resources each week to ensure our sport continues to prosper across the state.

To celebrate National Volunteer Week, RQ is calling on all industry stakeholders to share their stories and thank the wonderful volunteers that contribute to our sport each year.

RQ CEO Brendan Parnell said volunteers come in many shapes and forms.

“Volunteers play a crucial role in the ongoing success and viability of racing across the state, particularly in regional and rural areas,” Mr Parnell said.

“Volunteers might help out at their local club on race days, or help out a family member who participates in racing.”

Mr Parnell said Racing Queensland was proud to join the rest of the country to celebrate the six million Australians who give their time to help others each year.

“I would encourage as many people as possible to share their stories, which serve to inspire others to lend a hand and make a difference.”
