2019 Team Teal

Between February 1 and March 10 lady drivers all over Australia will form “Team Teal”, an awareness and fundraising campaign that connects the harness racing industry with Women’s Cancer Foundation. Each time a female driver wins a race they secure funds for ovarian and gynaecological cancer research conducted by the Australia New Zealand Gynaecological Oncology Group (ANZGOG).

While the campaign initiated in Victoria in 2014, it has since grown to an international status with hundreds of reinswomen wearing teal driving pants last year, securing a total of 315 winners and close to $200,000 in donations. This year they strive for more with the fundraising goal set at $250,000.

As in tradition the campaign ends with the Australian Female Drivers Championship, this year being staged at Albion Park on March 9.

QLD TEAM TEAL AMBASSADORS

This year Narissa McMullen and Kylie Rasmussen were chosen as the Team Teal ambassadors. They will also represent Queensland in the Australian Female Drivers Championship held at Albion Park on March 9.

McMullen has been the most successful Queensland female driver while driving in her teal pants for the past two campaigns, in which she has accumulated a total of 19 winners.

“It’s great that we are back driving in the teal pants again this year, getting a winner is always great but to raise money for such a worthy cause while doing so is even better,” McMullen said.
