NET Patient Rob Hammond created this first ever race day in support of NECA, working closely with Neil Walsh and Peter Staples (Tas Racing) to ensure not only vital funds were raised, but much needed awareness right across Tasmania.

We were joined by other NET Patients during the evening where we dined having full view of the Mowbray Racetrack below – Launceston really put on the weather with a balmy evening ending in a beautiful spring rain.
Brent Crawford emceed the evening and Hayden auctioned off very special prizing, including shares in a racehorse and a trip to Flinders Island. We are very pleased to say that over $47,646 has been raised!
Many thanks to everyone involved, particularly the entire Hammond family whose generosity of time and spirit has delivered awareness, funds and a sense of community to the Tasmanian NET patients.
