Bookings Now Open

Bookings Now Open | 2015 Great Wheelbarrow Race Team Newsletter | Scoop.it

Bookings now open. Each entry ticket(s) is great value, only $25, which includes a meal. People are invited to get dressed up in their racing finery for a night of punting, fashions of the field, food, silent auctions, awesome prizes etc and a whole load of fun!!  

We also have horses to “sell”.

 

For $20 you can “buy” and “own” a horse, you can name it whatever weird, whacky, racy, funny name your heart desires. If you are the “owner” of the winning horse (1 in 8 chance), then you will receive the major prize for that race. Purchase a horse in the shop for a chance to win a fabulous prize - but be quick, only 56 in total.

 

Of course with any great race meet, the event would not be complete without the opportunity to place a few bets and maybe win yourself a few dollars!! 

Deb Robins's insight:

Inspired by Carolyn Pomeroy, are a group of women who are going to run for 3 days from Mareeba to Chillagoe in Far North Queensland, pushing a wheelbarrow for 140km!

MILFs are raising money to help Carolyn's nephew "Jack" and all the other children affected by Duchenne muscular dystrophy. (DMD). Your contribution will go a long way towards helping Jack, his family, and all the other Duchenne families in Australia. Without your help vital research, new medications and treatments etc would not be possible. The team gladly push our own muscles to their very end in support of these children.....because we can.....and because we want to make a difference. We have created an Everyday Hero Page so that you can sponsor us  because we are donating our efforts to the national DMD Charity, Duchenne Foundation.  Subscribe to our 2015 Wheelbarrow Race newsletter as we are organizing a Quiz Night  (April 18th) and Horse Racing Night (May 2nd) and we want you to keep abreast of our sponsors and prizes and  join in the fun on the nights.

MILF's our local Great Wheelbarrow Race team hit the road this weekend having raised over $12,000 so far. We wish them lots of fun and laughter, thoroughly deserved after all their months of training and fundraising. May the wind be at their backs and not too chilly up there in the tablelands. May they have no injuries or flat tyres but only smiles and feelings of expansiveness and elation. Thank you very much MILF's and DILF's.
