Easter spirit is in full swing for us over at NJT Blogger HQ and we are sourcing all the best school holiday activities for you to engage in with your family.
Melbourne Racing Club are offering family fun for a great cause, Melbourne Racing Club’s Easter Cup Day on Saturday 4th of April.
To give you an idea of what’s happening on the day, regular racegoers will enjoy some of Australia’s finest Group 3 racing and there will be an array of activities such as pony rides, arts and crafts, face painting, an inflatable combat challenge and a Zoo on Wheels with ride-on toy animals.
The $5 donation fee, which goes to Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation, will enable kids and parents to enter the search for eggs and provide them with an Easter bucket to collect them in.
Background on Zaire’s Rainbow Foundation:
The Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation aims to raise awareness of the importance on organ and tissue donation and Caulfield’s Easter Egg Hunt is one of the organisations major fundraising events.
Zaidee’s story is directed towards children and adults to think about others waiting for a life saving operation and a suitable match of organ tissue for a second chance at life. In further support of Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation on Easter Cup Day, jockeys will be wearing signature rainbow breeches for the Group 3 Victoria Handicap race.
It wasn’t until I had come across the Melbourne Racing Club’s Easter Cup Day that I knew about Zaire’s Rainbow Foundation and I think it’s such an important foundation to be aware of and hopefully be apart of.
