The momentum behind the Leigh Plunkett Foundation (LPF) launch will continue into October with the announcement of special colours to be worn by drivers in each state to raise awareness.
Two of the biggest names in Victoria and New South Wales were quick to throw their support behind the campaign too with Greg Sugars driving for Victoria and Lauren Panella in New South Wales.
Each of the six drivers will wear their designated LPF colours for every drive they have during the month of October and with races such as the City Of Melton Plate and Kilmore Cup within the time period the exposure is sure to be massive.
The LPF has thrown their support behind the Leukaemia foundation in their first year with events run across each state proving a success for the industry.
Western Australia’s leading driver Gary Hall Jr will also be involved as he competes behind every drive with the distinctive colours that are comprised predominantly of white with black sleeves and the LPF logo.
Todd Rattray in Tasmania, Grant Dixon in Queensland and David Harding in South Australia will all also be supporting the cause by wearing the newly designed silks.
The foundation will also be providing one lucky young participant from around Australia the chance to travel overseas to further their knowledge of trotting, applications are open until October 31 to anyone within the industry between the ages of 18-30.
