The Bendigo Greyhound Racing Association (BGRA) is once again proud to join forces with the Bendigo Harness Racing Club to raise funds for WomenCan and awareness for Women’s Ovarian Cancer through the Team Teal initiative.
Each February, the harness racing industry gets behind the Team Teal campaign, an initiative of harness racing identity Duncan McPherson. Several years ago, the BGRA became involved to support the wonderful cause.
In 2024, the Club will join forces with the Bendigo Harness Racing Club hosting the annual Dual Code Race meeting with the aim to raise funds and awareness for Ovarian Cancer through Team Teal. On the track the BGRA, with the support of GRV, will be promoting an all-female race card of advertised events.
“The female-only only race card has gotten bigger every year and is a perfect fit for an event such as the Dual Code Team Teal race night, the Club is excited to be a part of such a special campaign. Last year was a great night on and off the track,” said BGRA Manager Charlton Hindle.
Hindle continued… “thanks to the support of GRV and its Racing Department, there will be a feature event over the 425m and heats for the maiden series as well. We think the programme that is being advertised will cover as many classes as possible”.
“The BGRA has been a strong community club for many years and it’s an honour to continue our involvement with the BHRC and Team Teal. Our aim is through some promotions during February and other initiatives on the night we can raise somewhere around $5,000 for the cause,” added Hindle.
