Participants may be aware that Hunter region participant Alex Verhagen was injured on Sunday night on his way home from Gunnedah greyhounds. 

The Association is in contact with the Verhagen family with regards to monitoring the extent of injuries sustained in the accident. 

Once more details are available of Alex’s exact needs for rehabilitation and continuation in the sport, the Association will assist in the formation of a fundraising committee, which will seek to raise funds and services needed. 

Thanks must go to those participants already assisting the family

Those interested in assisting are encouraged to email gbota@gbota.com.au 

The Association will update this article as further details come to hand
