Plans are in place for the 2021 Pacing for Pink day at Shepparton, where the industry throws its support behind the McGrath Foundation and its fabulous breast cancer nurses.

This year the major fundraiser will be held on Sunday May 23, the highlight of a month-long drive that will build on the thousands of dollars the trots initiative has raised over the past decade.

Event organiser and reinswoman Donna Castles said they were “really looking forward to making our 2021 campaign the biggest yet”.

“It was really unfortunate that we had to cancel the 2020 fundraiser due to COVID, but we wanted to make sure all our wonderful sponsors that have come on board received the recognition they deserve and pushing the campaign back 12 months allowed us to do that,” Castles said.

“The pants with the original sponsors names are currently being made and will be distributed to drivers in the new year.”

This coming May, 78 drivers who sought individual sponsorships will wear pink driving pants to raise awareness for the McGrath Foundation, with the May 23 centrepiece to see special rugs awarded to race winners and many giveaways and fundraising activities.

More details will be announced as the initiative nears.
