To be staged on “Super Saturday, March 11, 2017”, Walk For Phil encourages the generosity of the nation’s third biggest industry; to reach beyond it’s own participants, fans and supporters to embrace the general community to aid three of Phil Sly’s favourite charities.
Phil Sly was a larger than life character, thoroughly built around his passion for all of racing, from the punt, to ownership to camaraderie, but a man who valued life and giving to others.
Phil lost a staunch and rallying fight against “The Grub” of cancer in 2016 but not before inspiring others who were in sufferance along with many more who could make a difference and rally behind him and the cause.
And that is the idea behind Walk For Phil, something that he passionately drove before his passing, with a view to help his dear to heart Pancare, along with other life changing charities, Pinchapoo and Very Special Kids.
This walk is to honour not just his life, one fully spent, but to work towards providing life-changing differences for others.
Walk For Phil is a 27km walk from Caulfield Racecourse to Moonee Valley Racecourse and finishing up the straight at Flemington Racecourse .
Registration is $50 including a Walk For Phil shirt and breakfast .Walk starts at 5am sharp and concludes at 11:30am.
