The Victoria Racing Club (VRC) is proud to support Very Special Kids as the Pin & Win charity partner for 2021.

Pin & Win is the VRC’s flagship annual charity fundraiser and since 1995 has given charities the platform to raise more than $6.3 million through the sale of Lexus Melbourne Cup souvenir pins, helping to change lives and support the community.

Very Special Kids cares for children with life limiting conditions and support 850 families across Victoria by providing ongoing assistance at diagnosis all the way to bereavement.

All proceeds raised from pin sales will go towards the construction of a brand new children’s hospice in Malvern due for completion in 2023.

This is just a security measure intended to distinguish a human from machine input, we use it to make sure all entrants are genuine and not spam, automated or set up to enter multiple times. It’s in essence just another entry field, but it is slightly different in that it will be a small online visual perception task. It’s designed so that humans can pass it, but computers cannot.
