Welcome to the 2016 TAB Great Chase Community Event 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.
