Our second official day of the 2018 Energy Breakthrough saw our newly named VicRoads Track come alive with our Pushcart Teams taking to the track for their Endurance Event.

The Energy Breakthrough produces some amazing stories each year. And every person at the event has a different reason for being there, obstacles they've overcome and achievements they want to celebrate. This year we are running a special feature and want to hear from schools, participants and parents in the lead up to the event with any amazing stories, celebrations, milestones and hardships they, you or your school may have experienced. Drop us an email to media[at]eb.org.au with a few dot points about your story and we will be in touch shortly.
Over the past 27 years, we've seen many different way teams celebrate the achievements and milestones they reach at the Energy Breakthrough on Sunday afternoon. And 2017 was no different!
