The TAB Great Chase Community Event is where Victoria’s greyhounds run for local community groups supporting the elderly and the intellectually and physically disabled. It’s a great day out at the races for the groups and the people they care for and an opportunity for their groups to win cash prizes to support their good work.
Since 2003, the annual Great Chase Community Days have raised over $500,000 and provided race day action and excitement for hundreds of community groups and thousands of their clients around Victoria. This year, nearly 100 groups shared in $44,000 in prize money.
The Sandown Great Chase Community Day
Around 90 people from eight community groups turned up for Sandown’s Greyhound Racing Club’s Great Chase Community Day on 14 August 2016. The groups were:
Absalom Supported Residential Services, Blairlogie Living and learning Inc, Blind Sports Victoria, The Bridge Connects, Fewster House, Healthscope, Lubrano House and Wallara.
Blairlogie Living and Learning drew the winning greyhound on the day.
“We really enjoyed watching the races and meeting some GAP dogs and our winnings will help with travel and accommodation costs for the Tri-State Games for the disabled in Horsham.” – Blairlogie Living and Learning representative
