Charities & Community Involvement

It is important to Addington that we reach out to our local community involving ourselves and supporting many charitable and not for profit organisations.

Our support by way of sponsorship or donations plays a vital part to many community organisations ensuring they continue to operate within a positive environment.

Our charities of choice are:

Donations boxes can be found in Spectators and at the administration desk on the ground floor of the Metropolitan Stand on race nights/days.

More than 200 Australian and New Zealand reinswomen will race in teal driving pants to raise awareness and funds for ovarian cancer research as part of Women’s Cancer Foundation’s Team Teal campaign.

Reinswomen from New Zealand and Australia will be taking part in Team Teal during February 2020.

Funds raised will support research for nurses, delivering treatments in newly established research sites, in Australia and New Zealand hospitals, helping provide greater access to clinical trials for women with a gynaecological cancer.

It is our hope that every woman diagnosed with gynaecological cancer has the opportunity to be part of a clinical trial, the best tool we have to make a difference to their life.

Gynaecological cancer impacts our mothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, wives and friends. Nearly 2 out of 3 women diagnosed with ovarian cancer will not survive.
