On Friday 18th June 2021, the Sunshine Coast Turf Club hosted the inaugural Uniforms 4 Kids Race Day. Uniforms 4 Kids is an innovative program repurposing donated law enforcement and emergency services organisations uniforms (which would have otherwise been disposed of), into beautiful and unique clothes made with love for children who have a need no matter who they are or where they are located.
