Two important charities join the chase

GRV’s 2021 Chase for Charity program was launched today with exciting news that two charities will join the competition for the first time.

Louise Martin, GRV’s GM Strategic Communication & Marketing, announced that McAuley Foundation and Time 2 Talk would be beneficiaries of the competition this year, along with Ronald McDonald House.

Louise said that like Ronald McDonald House, the two new charities were close to her heart.

“Danny Frawley was a dear friend. I worked with him at the Department of Justice through the (AFL) Coaches Association. We’re working alongside his organisation (Time 2 Talk), which is about men’s mental health, and we’re also supporting McAuley House, which is about family violence and helping women and children be safe,” Louise said.

Chase for Charity, part of the Off The Bench radio show which is heard on 1116 SEN and across various regional radio stations around Victoria every Saturday morning, sees hosts Craig Hutchison and Liam Pickering place bets on Victorian greyhound races each week with all winnings going to charity.

The program has raised $170,000 for charity since it began in 2017.
