Last night marked the half-way point of GRV’s current fundraising efforts for displaced Ukrainians who have fled to Australia as a result of the current war on their home country.
GRV is donating $400 to help Ukrainians in need of humanitarian aid every time the blue number four dog and yellow number five dog run first and second (in any order) in the same race at any Victorian racetrack for a period of one month up until to May 5, 2023.
The campaign started on April 6 – International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) – with the four and five dog quinellas already landing on 16 occasions over the first 15 days, equating to $6400 being raised so far.
Blue and yellow are the colours of the Ukrainian flag.
GRV and its 13 race clubs support a number of charities each year, and are proud to join forces with the Association of Ukrainians in Victoria (AUV) for this extremely worthwhile cause.
