The largest charity event on the NSW racing calendar
2021 is the 23rd anniversary of the Might and Power Race Day and since its inception has raised over $6.1 million in funding. These funds have provided vital therapy, respite services and supported a number of other programs for children living with cerebral palsy and their families.
Cerebral palsy is a physical disability that affects movement and posture. It is a permanent life-long condition, but generally does not worsen over time. It is due to damage to the developing brain either during pregnancy or shortly after birth.
Every 20 hours an Australian child is born with cerebral palsy, making it the most common physical disability in childhood for which there is no known cure.
