HRV, Tabcorp back Team Teal campaign

For the month of February – Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month – and until March 10, all women harness racing drivers wear specially designed teal pants to raise funds.

Awareness for the Women’s Cancer Foundation (fundraising for the Australia New Zealand Gynaecological Oncology Group (ANZGOG) – improving life for women through gynaecological cancer research).

HRV has unveiled an increased line-up of Team Teal official ambassadors consisting of Kerryn Manning, Kate


Gath, Jodi Quinlan, Monique Burnett and Jackie Barker. When ambassadors race during the campaign they

wear teal promotional silks in addition to teal pants.

“The Team Teal campaign has been warmly embraced by all involved in our industry and HRV, which has

backed Team Teal from the start, is proud to again support the vital work being done by the Women’s Cancer

Foundation,” HRV CEO David Martin said.

“We’ll support Team Teal with a $200 donation every time a reinswoman wins a race in Victoria. We’ll also

activate our marketing and media teams to promote the #GetRealSupportTeal message across all channels

and encourage media partners to do the same.

“Having five wonderful participant ambassadors in Kerryn, Kate, Jodi, Monique and Jackie will ensure

maximum exposure of Team Teal across the state.”

Quinlan is currently injured and won’t race during the campaign, but has been a strong advocate and

ambassador for Team Teal since day one.

“While Jodi is unfortunately on the sidelines and we wish her a speedy recovery, she will still be an official

Team Teal ambassador due to her passionate support of this campaign over several years,” Mr Martin said.

Tabcorp, also an avid supporter of the Team Teal message, has again vowed to match HRV’s $200-per-win

commitment, meaning any win by a reinswoman in Victoria will result in a $400 donation.

“This is the fourth year we’ve backed the Team Teal campaign and we’re delighted to offer our support to the

Women’s Cancer Foundation alongside our harness racing partners,” Tabcorp Executive General Manager –

Wagering Andy Wright said.

“Financially we’re matching HRV’s donation each time a reinswoman takes out a race in Victoria throughout

the campaign. An upcoming Sky Racing commercial will also help drive awareness.”
