Teaming Up

Make-A-Wish Australia is the main charity partner for their flagship race, the W.S. Cox Plate, and CEO Michael Browell says he's delighted at the expansion of the partnership even further.

"It brings me enormous pleasure to be able to align the amazing work of this charity with the Centenary of our flagship race, the W.S. Cox Plate,” says Mr Browell.

Bringing Wishes to Life

Every charity pin sold will help bring wishes to life for kids like Alannah, Erin and Lottie - who all wished for a dream horse to care for.

By purchasing a charity pin, you're making life-changing wishes possible. And, for everyone involved, wishes have a remarkable, uplifting and positive impact – well beyond the wish itself.
