Team Teal 2020
Running Tally: $46,000 as at 09 March
The Team Teal Campaign for 2020 runs from 1st February to 15th March (inclusive).
Founded by Duncan McPherson in Victoria in 2014, the campaign was started to help raise awareness and raise funds for research on Ovarian Cancer.
McPherson lost his wife to Ovarian Cancer and vowed to continue her fight, and has grown the movement from Victoria, to nationwide Australia and now New Zealand.
Every female driver in New Zealand will wear the Teal Pants during February and March, with each win receiving $400 in donations, $200 from Harness Racing New Zealand, $100 from Woodlands Stud and $100 from the respective Club.
Our ambassadors in 2020 are Nicky Chilcott and Alicia Harrison (North Island), Samantha Ottley (Canterbury) and Ellie Barron (Southland). As well as Emma Adams (Junior Kidz Kartz Ambassador).
A number of the clubs racing during the period are running or hosting events for team teal. Please find details below:
