What’s Pin & Win?

Pin & Win is the VRC's major annual fundraising activity, and will for the second year support JDRF in 2018. Since 1995, the VRC has given charities the platform to raise more than $5 million through the sale of Lexus Melbourne Cup souvenir pins, helping to change lives and support our community.

JDRF is the leading global organisation funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research with a mission to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. JDRF Australia is built on a grassroots model of people connecting in their local communities, collaborating regionally for efficiency and broader fundraising impact, and uniting on an international stage to pool resources, passion and energy.
