The Wally Foreman Foundation extends its congratulations and thanks to all competitors of the 2017 Wally Foreman Corporate Canter at Domain Stadium.
The Foundation expresses its sincerest gratitude to the West Coast Eagles, its Board and Staff for providing the opportunity to run the Canter on the large stage of an AFL Premiership Season match.
The Corporate Canter – an annual light-hearted relay aimed at drawing out the friendly competition of the corporate sector – is the flagship event of the WFF.
University Football Club ran out 2017 WFF Corporate Canter winners, narrowly edging competition rival North Beach Football Club, with representatives from law firm Clayton Utz crossing the line in third.
University's runners claimed the mounted Golden Baton to display at the Club, while all competitors were permitted to keep their green race batons as mementos of the occasion.
The race was shown on the stadium's large screens and was commentated by Macquarie Radio and West Coast on-ground announcer Karl Langdon, with special comments by Foundation Board Member and ABC Grandstand host Karen Tighe.
The WFF was granted the opportunity to host the Corporate Canter on-ground at Domain Stadium ahead of the Round 10 AFL match between the West Coast Eagles and Greater Western Sydney Giants.
The big stage of Australia's national sport provided competitors with the unique thrill of running on an AFL ground shortly before bouncedown, with runners also given a seat at the game, while also helping to ensure corporate bodies received maximum exposure in their support of the Foundation.

Wally Foreman Foundation
WFF aspires to continue the work of respected sports broadcaster and administrator Wally Foreman, who was a strong and tireless advocate for West Australian athletes and coaches, before his passing in 2006 from a heart attack.
The Foundation, through its activities and the generous support of the community, raises funds to support athletes and coaches who are not covered by existing scholarships in their pursuit of sporting excellence.
The tremendous and ongoing support of organisations such as the Carbine Club, an inaugural and consistent benefactor, has helped the Foundation issue 39 scholarships since its inception, which are presented at the WA Institute of Sport Annual Dinner.
Applications for this year's round of scholarships will open towards the end of August to early September.
