Founded by VFL/ AFL player Mark Eustice, ME6 Presents ‘THE RACE AGAINST ICE’ is the launch event of an important new initiative formed to bring awareness about society’s most insidious drug – ice.
Having battled addiction for many years Mark Eustice found relief from said addiction following a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. After returning from an extended rehabilitation Mark was determined to both bring awareness to and directly help those afflicted by addiction.
THE RACE AGAINST ICE is the first event whose purpose is to directly help deliver those afflicted by addiction the help and rehabilitation they desperately need. Hosted at Fitzroy music venue The Workers Club the event features the renowned MC work of Essendon legend Simon Madden who will also be showcasing his guitar talents as part of the band ‘Better Late Than Never’. Other musical acts include Australian music legends Wendy Stapleton & Paul Norton as well as former ‘Stars’ front man Mick Pealing.
Coinciding with Stakes Day the event will feature raffles, silent auctions, Stakes Day sweeps and a punters club with all races shown on the big screen.
Ice use in Australia has tripled in the last 5 years and its use is still rapidly increasing. Help support the awareness campaign by attending ME6’s ‘THE RACE AGAINST ICE’.
